Great Fares / Hot Deals Eating $150 deposit fee on BA 'fare sale'?

    Hi Lucky,

    I'm going to join the chorus of folks asking about the BA 'fare sale' :)

    My positioning flight award hold using AA miles expires tomorrow, and I'd really rather not eat the $150 redeposit fee if BA up and cancels my reservation. My gut is saying that since they've not come out and even acknowledged the problem, they just might leave the tickets as-is...

    Is this wishful thinking?

    @ theBOAT -- Could go either way. Unfortunately don't have anything further to add. Reasonably I think they have a duty to say something by now if they weren't planning on honoring it, but it's also BA. I'd feel fairly comfortable booking, and worse case scenario $150 isn't *that* much downside.
