    Hi Guys!

    It's been a while, but I'm back with a question!

    I'm trying to book a BA Avios award on QF: ADL-ASP-AYQ all on the same day of travel as one single e-ticket. I can't seem to get this to work as a whole or segment by segment on BA's site (BA's site does not have AYQ loaded into their online system for booking awards). On QF's site, I also can only do segment by segment, not as one award. (I know its a valid trip because the ticket is available to purchase as one ticket.) I CAN see the space as a SINGLE award on AAdvantage though. Should I call BA to book this award as a single ticket? I really want it on one single e-ticket for simplicity's sake. Will I be charged a phone booking fee?

    I know the award will be priced as technically two separate awards with BA.

    Thanks for the help! I've only uses BA Avios a few times, compared to the countless times I've used AAdvantage.

    ASP-AYQ is operated by QantasLink; this is not bookable on BA's website. You must call, and technically they do not ever waive telephone booking fees. You may be able to get the agent to waive it as a courtesy, but know their official policy is to charge the fee so your mileage may vary.

    I've actually had very good luck with the BA call center waiving fees for awards that cannot be booked online so I would definitely ask.
