Will AA Domestic Booking credit to BA Tier Points to renew Gold Status?
I’m at 1250 BA Tier Points and had to push my return trip to the UK out, past the end of my collection year on March 8th.
I’ve booked directly with AA a SFO > MIA > SFO same day mileage run, quoting my BA Exec Number. The BA Tier Point calculator said the trip should earn 420 points, taking me well past 1500. I’ve booked it for 7th March, so don’t have any scope for getting another flight in if it doesn’t credit.
How can I be sure it credits to my BA account as a OneWorld flight. The AA booking reference isn’t recognised when I try to add it to my BA Account. Wondering if I need to book directly with BA over the phone, like I did with a recent SFO > JFK trip which did credit.
Thoughts? Thanks, Rob
Hi Rob! As long as you have your BA number in the reservation when you check in you should be fine. You can call AA and get the BA record locator as well, if you’d like, but the main thing is to have the right frequent flyer number in the booking.
