British Airways has made one pretty great change to their online award search tool overnight. Previously when searching for award space you’d have to specify the cabin you want to fly and it would only show you award space for that cabin. Now the award search automatically displays availability for all classes of service, for travel on both British Airways and partner airlines. Since the British Airways website is great for searching OneWorld award space, I’d say this is a pretty great improvement for anyone that has AAdvantage miles or any other OneWorld mileage currency.
I’m mildly amused that they tout the other functional improvements they’ve made, including:
Improved RFS (Reward Flight Saver) signposting and new icon to distinguish from standard redemptions.
A ‘change flights’ button on the fare quote page to make it easier for you to change selected flights.
A new ‘back’ button on the fare quote page to allow enable easier navigation between pages
I’ll try to curb my enthusiasm on the last three changes…
