Eager To Learn International Award Booking...but totally stuck and have some basic questions. As I noted in another thread, I am trying to book my first European Award ticket and not satisfied with the routing that AA is giving me. I am experiencing high fuel surcharges and long lay overs and really want to learn how to build my own route. My goal is SEA-FCO on AA Off Peak awards. AA routes me via LHR on BA which has very high fuel surcharges. So I tried SEA-FLR as a second option (same country) and AA routes me via DUS or BER on Air Berlin with very low surcharges. I see that Air Berlin flies into FCO...so how do I get the system to let me search Air Berlin instead of forcing me into LHR!?!? I'm sure this is pretty basic but it totally has me stumped and I am stuck at this point. I appreciate the help.
