I need one last segment to make my award trip work and my inexperience booking non Cathay/BA awards with AA miles is catching up to me. Qantas shows "Classic & Partner" award space on the LAN connecting flight from AKL to SYD, but neither BA or AA sites bring it up. I've called AA twice now, and they can see the flight, but are telling me there's no award space on it. And at this point, the cash cost of the ticket is up 100% so I'm starting to get frustrated. Am I just seeing phantom award space? Or am I just not asking the right questions/using the right terminology. Thank you in advance.
