BA [First] Sweden - USA, starting at 2270 EUR R/T

Stumbled upon a great First Class fare on BA (AA Codeshare) between Sweden and the US. It also seems to work from Denmark and Norway. Must be booked as AA code.

Stockholm - New York: 22800 SEK (around 2300 EUR)
Stockholm - Los Angeles: 24800 SEK (around 2600 EUR)

Example NYC: google.se/flights/#search;f=ARN,BMA,NYO;t=JFK,EWR,LGA;d=2017-11-15;r=2017-11-21;sc=f

Example LAX:

Good price for first, even though AA/BA first isn't the best. Here is hoping LX/LH match this. Thanks OP

Tried for YYZ in June, 24700 SEK, too. That's useful

Do you know how the EQMs will be credited to AS with an AA marketed/ticketed flight operated by BA? There is a big difference between the two, with BA being the "richest".

AS' policy is that technically, such flights won't be credited. In actual practice - and many AS agents have confirmed this - AS credits based on the operating carrier. So if you book AA codes but fly on BA metal, you'll have to take a photo of your boarding pass and email it to AS seeking credit. I've done this dozens of times and never once failed to receive credit

I am not concerned about getting some sort of credit. My question is about whose schedule of EQMs would be used since BA's credit is much better in F than AA is!

Hoosier1710 answered your question. You will earn EQM/RDM based on the operating carrier. So if BA is flying the plane, it will use the BA award chart.

These all have the fare basis extension EUUP, so are discounted biz that upgrade automatically to first. Great fare, a bit more for west coast, but still great for F fares on oneworld.

The latter - the fares themselves don't specify a sales period but as there are constructed essentially as a promotional upgrade of existing fares the promotion will likely end at some point

It is an AA fare, DNN0C8S2/EUUP. There is no corresponding BA fare.

Code:
     THE FARE WAS CALCULATED AS 100 PERCENT OF THE DNN0C0S0
     FARE PLUS SEK1000.
Some routes also offer INN2C8S4/EUUP, which is slightly better.

The same calculation applies to the STO-HNL fare.
