AA Flyers and Seat Selection on British Airways Operated Flights

Link to FlyerTalk British Airways | Executive Club / BAEC forum guide thread with Wikipost: BA Seating Policy Guide

Link to BAEC forum Dashboard, including seating guides for BA aircraft. Please make enquiries regarding BA aircraft seats in the appropriate thread in the BAEC forum, not here in the AA forum, for better response.

Link to page "Choosing your seat" (policies and how to).

Link to BA Speedbird Club (agent site) seat policy
For Country select "Global"; for IATA number, press on "I don't have an IATA"
The Passenger should be advised
 BA will pre-seat the customer subject to availability & seat requests 
 are never guaranteed and always subject to operational needs
 Subsequent seat change 
 Should an aircraft or configuration change generate an automated 
 operational seat change that separates the party, the ‘request seat’ 
 process must be initiated again. The travel agent would need to 
 remove and re-enter the TOGT keyword.
Also from the BA website:

 Members of the Executive Club and other oneworld frequent flyers are able to 
 reserve seats at different stages, depending on their tier.
 Tier Seat selection 
 Gold/oneworld Emerald Free seat selection from the time of booking
 for everyone in your booking and friends and family on other bookings, 
 who are travelling with you in the same travel class and on the same flight*. 
 Silver/oneworld Sapphire Free seat selection from the time of booking
 for everyone in your booking*. 
 Bronze/oneworld Ruby Free seat selection from seven days before 
 departurefor everyone in your booking*. 
 *You must be travelling on the booking (or in the case of Gold Members, 
 one of the bookings) for these benefits to apply. They apply to British 
 Airways flights only and are not available on Basic (HBO / hand baggage only) 
 fares or group rate bookings. Exit row seats are not available to Silver or 
 Bronze Members on long haul flights until 24 hours before departure. 
 On some occasions, exit rows seats on short haul flights may not be 
 available in advance due to operational reasons.
Selecting seats can be done via the BA "Manage My Booking" tool (link) which may recognize your AA PNR (you will need your PNR and last name to log on to MMB). If not, you can get your BA PNR by calling AA, or you can go to the Qantas website, enter your AA PNR and you will be presented with your BA PNR.
