I don't think that the F PJs are all that great. Saving them for a future flights in J just seems strange to me, like saving a disposable coffee cup from Starbucks to use at Costa. If you want PJs...

I asked them to recommend a hotel in Vegas, they replied to say they'd get back to me and then never did. Hopeless.

You won't get upgraded TP's I'm afriad, just the points for the class you paid for.

Glad you enjoyed the trip, an op-up on your first BA trip is a bit of luck!

I've flown both and I'd say that BA wins by miles.

Lounges - BA's are far better, you have to pay for drinks on AA.
Seat - BA is better, proper flat bed and no 'middle seats'
