British Airways and American Airlines have jointly announced some changes to their US scheduling for the Winter timetable, starting in late October.
From 27th October, American Airlines is adding an extra Heathrow to Miami flight. There will now be five Miami flights each day, equally spaced, of which British Airways will operate three and American Airlines two.
All of these flights are bookable with Avios, although only the British Airways services allow the use of a British Airways American Express 2-4-1 voucher and have off-peak discounted pricing.
British Airways is adding three weekly flights to Philadelphia, which is a key American Airlines hub. The additional services will operate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, which will mean three flights per day. BA will operate two and American will operate one. There should be decent Avios availability on these new flights as they have just been announced.
