Do people generally think that the air filtration systems are better on new planes and therefore a 787 or A350 could be a better choice these days than an older plane (BA's 787 are no fun in WT...

Apologies for not being clear - it's a 125 ticket (i.e. AA flight, but booked through BA).

Apologies if I missed this fact pattern, but what's the policy for AA booked under BA number? In this case, JFK-MXP on AA (booked under BA number), then BA LHR-JFK back.

Definitely not - I'd be more willing to fly in WT out and apply this money towards a AUP to CW on the way back.

Looks like the LGW-JFK flight is operated by a 777 with FLUB on at least some dates - so those are first class seats.

BA 1 is blocked as 9h 50 min. Direct flights are 8h - 8h10. So yes, BA1 arrives as a domestic flight at JFK, but is only quicker than a regular LHR-JFK flight if it takes one more than 2h to clear...

I'm not sure if there's any plan to extend it beyond the current arrangement and allow Avios redemptions. Some of the FJ routes are AA codeshares and therefore bookable with AAdvantage points - e.g....

Just a date change. Same route, same class otherwise. It's an Avios.com booking combined with a Lloyds voucher.

I think other FT threads have already concluded that there is no travel insurance which covers missed departure due to cutting it too close and arriving late at the airport. If the airline says you...

It's an ex-US in the sense the trip is:
JFK-MXP (AA)

Have UuA costs changed drastically?

LHR-JFK route - used to be GBP 100 for WTP to CW (and I always had to call, since the UuA website was doing this incorrectly, as we all know). I was quoted GBP 304 for WTP to CW today (+24k Avios)...
