A lot of variables. Some things to consider:

- If you can maintain GO, you get benefits like lounge access on AA domestic not available to AA elites or domestic premium cabin pax. But you lose out...

Going via PHL gets the pain of immigration and security out of the way in one step on the connection instead of doing security (and an obnoxious terminal transfer if your LHR-ORD is AA operated) on...

The comments on the post are fascinating. Several suspect the video is a con and he paid for the J seat all along. This seems most logical, especially since I'd assume if they were going to upgrade...

I don't think this is worth worrying about if you're a student who's only starting university. Once you hit the working world a lot of this is going to depend on where in the world you...

I don't understand why people are so quick to dismiss the pax complaint about the connection time. If CX sold that as within MCT, it shouldn't be up to the pax to be savvy enough to second guess it....

There's also the problem of tight restrictions on the number of takeoffs and landings at LHR overnight. There isn't a curfew but there is a quota and a flight would need to be particularly profitable...

Just got one of these after OLCI for an itinerary ending at LHR. Not only is the timatic-ese potentially confusing, but there are two pax on the booking with two different nationalities with...

Bear in mind oneworld status carries benefits on BA even in J. Unless you're flying full fare, oneworld ruby will allow free seat selection from seven days before departure while sapphire and emerald...

Bear in mind that your BCN-LHR flight will arrive into T3 and your LHR-SJC flight will depart from T5. BA will only sell you a through ticket that meets the minimum connection time, but if your...

The pricing is generally the same when I book from LON either on the BA or AA website as you'd expect given the JBA. Although BA's vacations site does usually offer some excellent prices for...

In a spirit of learning and not criticizing the OP for what seemed like a good idea at the time, the two mistakes seem to be 1) trying to fix this over the phone rather than at the airport and 2)...

Have you also tried looking on BA.com? In theory the prices should be closely aligned, but in practice sometimes I've found booking AA flights under the BA codes on BA.com ends up being cheaper (and...

The UK is into the autumn school break season now which is probably leading to heavily booked cabins down the back and a little more wriggle room up front. This resulted in a welcome opup from...

I can confirm success in precisely this scenario a month ago. As others have noted, the trick is to navigate through the process on BA.com only far enough to see the AA PNR displayed, but then to log...

What a ridiculous reply. It's entirely reasonable for OP to come looking for some thoughts on how BA has tended to adjust its schedule in the face of similar weather events in the past. For instance...

Welcome to FT!

For the travel pattern you're describing it sounds like Silver might be the sweet spot. It's considerably easier to achieve than Gold but offers lounge access, free seat selection...

Yeah I'm sure that works great for you. Some of us have different concerns to do with the risk of lost luggage messing up an already tight schedule on a short trip. But if one thinks I could minimize...

I'd uss a car but the price the hotel is quoting you is ridiculous. Especially at a relatively quiet time traffic-wise I'd Uber. Or if you want to pre-book, plenty of good services around.

I recently broke a five-year op-up drought on BA as a SCH, first with a WTP->CW upgrade PHL-LHR (traveling solo) and then a ET->CE LHR-MAD (on the 777!) with my partner, who's Bronze.
