I am looking for help in tackling AA over a downgrade from Philly to Dublin. Sold as a BA code share. I believe that AA are responsible and that the EU rules don't apply to AA.

Where should I post?

No one can predict with any certainty. You might, you might not. There are numerous threads about connecting at ATL in the Delta forum.

Where to find information about Air Asia?

I'm flying them next week. Was interested in see what people are talking about - but I can't find a single post. Given they are such a big airline in Asia, I wondered why. Does nobody fly Air Asia? How can I search for threads? I typed "Air Asia" and just got everything but.

I was searching in that forum. But then it just seemed to give me results all over the place, none of which actdually related to Air Asia. So I manually scroll through the forum only?

When I searched within that forum for "Air Asia" (in quotes), the first page of topics has Air Asia in the topic description 11 times. I don't know why you're not seeing what I'm seeing. My screen displays a maximum of 25 topics at a time and they're rather hard to miss. Here's the first 3 of 11:

Air Asia Aggravation [Seats]

I think I've figured it out. There are (confusingly) two search boxes. I was assume there was an option with in the main search box to search in a particular forum and not seeing it. I realise now I had to use an entirely different box.

Unfortunately this isnt a travel agency. You can post in the main information desk as to what you have found when looking for yourself, whether you intend to be using cash or points, what points you have and what availability you have found, etc. Unfortunately, if you are expecting to find five business class transatlantic seats using points for June 2020, you are about 3 or 4 months too late to even have had a chance.

You could set up flight alerts on Google flight explorer. Here's a sample one for a 10 day trip in June in economy. Tweak it if you're looking at other fare classes or specific airlines. You'll see an icon to "track prices" at the top of the page once it's fully loaded.

Where could I ask about the best way to fly from city A to city B?

Context: I'm looking to fly SEA/YVR - CDG in Business class, and looking to see how I can compare the cabins for the various airlines that fly this route (e.g. Lufthansa, Delta, BA, AF, etc)
