Are there discrepancies between awards which are bookable on the BA website and on AAdvantage?
is it right that there is quite a discrepancy between awards which are bookable on the BA website and on AAavantage? I read that on a german forum and want to know if there is a more reliable method to search OW award space?
@ Philip — Which airline are you actually trying to travel on? Generally speaking, saver level oneworld award space should be the same between all carriers.
@Lucky…it’s QR on MUC-DOH-MEL. Just read from the admin of this german forum, that BA has very good availability on this route while the AA Agents claim they have very limited availability.
@ Philip — No, they should have access to the same Qatar Airways space. If you get an agent that can’t see the space, just hang up and call again.
@Philip I’m far from an expert like Ben but let me share my thoughts if I may.
I live in MEL and I search for QR J MEL-DOH and DOH-MEL space all the time. I search using the QF website as well as the KVS tool and can hardly find anything ever.
So I would say in this particular case maybe its BA that’s showing phantom availability ?
