(can still confirm this with historical pricing with Aug 1)

Example:

autopriced identically on 125 and 001.
Interesting - I was only seeing BA tickets with the deal, all the AA pricing on my routing was much higher, perhaps it was just pulling the prime AA flight numbers.

Thanks for the clarification.

When both TATL flights are with BA codes (required here), 125 will generally be default. So through online channels it would likely appear that 125 is all that is available.
I'd expect it would have been difficult to book through AA directly, and a TA would have had to select the validating carrier manually. While normally simple, I believe all non-125 routes would require talking to people to book this.. which would draw unwanted scrutiny for anyone paying attention (hence my comment about "limited usefulness").

Can you place all BA marketed codes on AA plate without AA marketed codes? Won't that violate IATA Res 852?

This is caused by a mispriced YR on 125 stock. This has happened in January exMXP, similar thing - 650EUR fare plus only about 250YR.

My example had one AA flight, PHL-SAN (which, I agree, is necessary here).

Since AA is considered a general sales agent for BA they can issue an all BA itinerary however I don't think non-airline agents can force it without any AA flight numbers. Adding a US domestic leg solves this problem.

Yet we read over and over within the BAEC forum how much they wish BA would fix their IT!

Happy for /Jealous of those who grabbed a ticket at this price range.

You jest but I imagine they'd need to have some separate system for JV TATL pricing since it needs access and to connect to AA, BA, IB, AY so it's probably in some server where one might find small animals living in the dust inside that will only be updated as absolutely strictly necessary by the grizzled IT guy who's the one who actually understands what the system is actually doing.

So all of these were basically 'error fares' then?!

There is no such thing. This was just a nice sale. This price is nowhere near what some special fares drop to. It's a good fare and those who bought it will enjoy it. But fares at this price point have come and gone for years.

Thank you- thought so but then read the posts about mis-priced fares and IT issues.....

Disappointed that we didn't go for this- hopefully there'll be a similar sale before too long.....

If it's ticketed by Aa, yes you should be able to. I was on a call with them yesterday about something like this and the agent confirmed that they will be able to do it based on availability. Good luck!

please report back. I'm also curious about BA's date flexibility after a major schedule change.

May I ask...when was the leg to MAD supposed to be? this year? next?
