American Airlines Flight AA6162

Looking to maybe book this flight (on the American Airlines website) from London Heathrow to Miami. Just wanted to check that when it says "operated by BA" that it will be a BA plane and not an AA plane. I think this is the case as it says plane would be a 747-400 and AA don't have one (according to Seat Guru anyway) but BA do.

Am I correct with this. I don't really want to fly all that way on a single aisle plane and potentially no seat back IFE.

Thanks

Forgive me, I thought this was a site to ask questions if we were unsure of something. I have only ever booked flights on the website of the carrier that I was using. I thought I had it correct in thinking that the plane would be a BA plane but as I wasn't 100% sure I thought I would ask - if that is ok with you!

It will be operated by BA but if you book with AA you'll need to get the BA reference from them in order to do online check in - remember that BA charge for seat selection in advance of online check in (24 hrs prior to departure) unless you have FF status.

Is it cheaper booking on AA? I'd be inclined to book it on BA otherwise, less complicated for OLCi and fewer opportunities for SNAFUs ( and yes operated by means exactly that so it will be BA metal)

Thanks for confirming. Yes it's quite alot cheaper on AA and there will be 5 of us so definitely adds up but i'll keep watching prices and see what happens.

Thanks
