American Airlines’ website has never been the best in terms of showing partner availability online and allowing partner flights to be booked. Now, they’ve gotten at least a little bit better. Iberia flights now show online and are bookable through the website!
There is a slight catch, however. If you search from the homepage, Iberia flights will not show up. Instead, you must use American’s Advanced Search.
Before this change was made, calling AA was the only way to book a flight on Iberia, and searching for Iberia flights was also more difficult involving either Expert Flyer or British Airways’ search tool.
It’s nice to see American Airlines making improvements to their award search engine. Hopefully more partners will be added in the future.
