Does American Advantage see the same award space as Qantas Frequent Flyer?

Hi, and thanks in advance for any help on this topic.

I am looking at flights (BNE/SYD/MEL - LHR) on the AA site to see if buying AA points on the current sale is worth it. I have called AA and there are no flights for the day I want on any other OW airlines that are not shown on the AA site.

While there are some flights available on or around the dates I am searching (I am flexible), all of the QF sectors coming back into Australia to all main ports show not available in Business, only economy.

However when I search the QF site and log in as a Gold member I see far more seats available in business on the Asia - Australia sectors than on the AA site where I am just a grommet.

How do I get around this? Can I get AA to call QF and secure the seats that I can see due to my status?

Thank you :slight_smile:

Hi Belinda,

Qantas Gold sees more availability than Qantas Bronze, which should be what AA sees. However, I have discovered that AA doesn’t see the same award space as QF Bronze, at least for Dec 2017.
