    I'm trying to book LFT to Den Round trip and I've looked at all the prices and I wanted to see how much AVIOS were but have no clue how to do that. Plus with the AMEX promotion I was gonna move some miles to AVIOS HELP. Or will more flights come up on United cause right now they really don't have that many.

    If you go on the BA.com site, under the 'Spending Avios' section is a subcategory 'How many Avios do I need' where you can input your inquiry & find out how many Avios is required for your desired trip.

    Error

    Sorry, this journey is flown by British Airways and a partner airline. Please try again and search for the individual flights that make up the journey.
    This is what it gives me. It's an American flight but it doesn't let me check

    I beleive you need to click a box that says 'search partners' or something like that.

    I believe it's dependent on the award inventory that AA releases for Avios redemption. I am not well versed in either AA or BA award inventory availability, so hopefully someone will weigh-in with more relevant info.
