Welcome to FlyerTalk, davidjdangelo. A great first post.

It looks like O across the pond and S intra-Europe with an OTA discount via Momondo. You may also try booking direct with BA using AARP or FoundersCard discount combnined with BA Visa Cardofferu for additional savings.

AARP has produced no difference in price recently and BA cardofferu only good thur 12.31.17

BTW, davidjdangelo, like-wise, nice first post and welcome to Flyertalk!

Thanks!

Great fare. Best part is that you can book AA flight numbers on BA metal and you can get the price as a Special Fare!

The only guaranteed way is to use AAVacations. You'd need to search there and hope you can find a similar bargain. Which is certainly a possibility.

How do flights booked through AA with AA flight numbers, but BA operated get calculated? From reading the AA pages, its unclear if it is revenue based or based on partners fare class.

If your ticket has an "AA" flight number, it is called "AA-marketed", and the AA page applies* regardless of the operator.

The same is true of the OneWorld partners -- "marketed" determines which page, not "operated", and not which airline you booked through or bought from.

* Except, I should note, if the ticket falls into one of the Special Fares categories such as AAVacations, in which case it uses that page.

On the AA Special Fares page, what exactly does the phrase "EQDs per mile flown," mean, and how is it calculated? Does it mean that EQDs are awarded based upon a percentage of actual air miles flown, or is this a reduced percentage of the amount of EQDs that would ordinarily accrue based on the fare purchase price?

It's the former. As with partner-marketed flights, what you paid has no bearing on the EQD earned.
