    Hi! I can't seem to use BA Avios to search for flights on AA and redeem points. Did I miss something? Is it no longer possible to book AA flights using BA Avios?

    You're not missing anything, sometimes the BA search engine just doesn't show the flights. First, you might try searching segment by segment just to see if the flights show. But even if they don't, just make note of the flight numbers and call BA. They should be able to see the flights and book them for you - and they should waive the booking fee since you can't book online. See this recent thread with another person reporting the same issue: http://asklucky.onemileatatime.com/threads/aa-award-with-avios.36033
