British Airways or American Airlines Messed Up Avios
I'm not sure who's fault this is, but something is broken. American Airlines is listing first class on a CRJ-700, a two cabin airplane, as first. British Airways' Avios is charging it as first class on a three cabin airplane. This award should be priced at the business class rate and be 1/3 cheaper (18,000 miles rather than 27,000). One or the other is messing up and destroying the value of the Avios program. Since I need to blame someone for my unnecessary frustration, I'll say it is BA's fault for not pricing awards correctly.
