Booking award tickets on One world partners

Booking award tickets on One world partners

    Having flown over 4 million miles, I have never booked a flight using a partner airline. How does that work? I live in Moscow and all BA flights go through LHR and I hate paying the ridiculously high fees. How can I for instance book a flight to LAX using Finair? I have AAdvantage miles. Which airline do I book with?

    Thanks, Lucky, I really enjoy your blog.

    You would still book with American, if that’s where your mileage is.

    Some partner availability though does not show on website. We’d recommend searching on either or for what is available. Then, you’d have to call in to American to actually book the ticket.

    Hope that makes sense!
