Can't manage my flight with my BA booking reference.

I have previously called JAL for a seat allocation enquiry and they have pulled up my details using the BA reference. When trying to use the "manage my flight" on their website it doesn't recognise it though. This is a concern because I believe when it comes to online check-in it will also not recognise the reference number.

JAL. Coded or BA coded flight?

Do you have a middle name in the booking?

BA coded and although there's no middle name on the booking I've tried putting my middle name with no space.

The codeshare flights are the issue. As JAL usually does not support looking up flights coded with partner flight numbers.

I don't have experience with BA coded online check in with JAL, but I suspect it works despite the inability to look up the flight through manage booking. If you have seats, on line check in is not the biggest loss should it fail.
