British Airways Point Redemption on AA
Just wanted to point something out I have seen recently in using my British Airways points on American Airlines which I do quite often. The last several times when I have booked I have gone to the AA website after to book a seat and all seats are blocked out. Message reads “we are unable to assign seats for everyone, please check back or we will assign seats at airport.” When I call American they can assign a seat. I have to explain in detail what happened so they waive the $50 fee for doing it over the phone and book me a seat. They gave me a very hard time about it today. Anyway, wonder if you have heard about this or what gives. This has never happened before and I was always able to book seats before. Does anyone know why this might have changed from the past? Thanks. Bill Gorman.
