Is it fairly easy to get through to BA Holidays? I might be going to take a deep breath and try and book an 8-sector trip for next year for 640 TPs!

I put together an 8 leg trip on ITA for 720, called BA gold and they could not book it even though I gave flight numbers and dates! It kept falling over on the 3rd leg jfk/lax, TBF to agent I emailed her my trip but she came back not bookable and even checked with her manager so good luck. Then tweaked and tried to spit it into AA booking and again it fell over. More than a tad frustrating as TP was just under 1.70 per TP

Likely the JFK-LAX was a married segment to the transatlantic. With BA on the phone you can near guarantee that no matter what you ask they’ll be booking BA codeshares on AA flights. Often the JFK-LAX availability is different when married to a BA code on the transatlantic than an AA code. I’ve had to HUCA when agents have claimed they can’t book AA codes, they can, but frequently won’t.

Then again if a holiday you need the BA flight numbers for double TP.
