comment How I find the BA-equivalent booking reference for an American Airlines-managed reservation?
Hmm, I have a feeling that will make things more complicated not less (I can see my miles ending up in the wrong account)! But good thought.

As I mentioned before, I'm not a BA frequent flyer - although that tip could be useful for others. The Qantas one sounds intriguing though - great tip. I'll try that next time.

Gagravarr, I'm not a BA frequent flyer - I am an AAdvantage member.

Ikeelyou, yep. Still no dice.

I have tried virtuallythere.com, but unfortunately I get the error "THIS RESERVATION DOESN'T HAVE EMAIL, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGER". Goodness knows what that means.

Oh, and I am Sapphire. Hence the frustration :)

I have the eTicket number from the confirmation email, but it only has the American (Sabre) record locator and the (long) eTicket number.

Thanks. CheckMyTrip would probably help in the opposite scenario, but it's the Amadeus number I don't have.

That is all true. Yet, I know when I book a similar reservation through my corporate travel agent, I get two reservation numbers - so the information is there and sometimes IS exposed to the public. I'm looking for a way to get to it - through AA or elsewhere. I haven't given up hope...

IkeelYou, yes. It is not recognised.

@traindriver, thanks. Wasn't an option as I used miles to pay for it. Good thought though.

comment Transferring between British Airlines and Delta at LHR - T5 to T3 - is 2h30 sufficient?
In my experience, an ePassport at T5 doesn't often speed things up (often the queue can be longer than that for those with older EU passports, and processing each person is typically not as rapid). But non-EU passport lanes generally are longer, yes, and presumably take longer to process, too.

Do you have any citations or references which explain or support this?

comment Turkish Airlines Baggage Allowance
I think it's quite likely that 40kg = 2 x bags with a max of 20kg each. In my experience many airlines consider bags over 32kg to be overweight and may refuse to carry them entirely for health and safety reasons: britishairways.com/en-gb/information/baggage-essentials/…

comment What tips or tricks can you use to get “upgraded”/better hotel rooms?
Hi - thanks for your answer. Generally linking to an article is discouraged here without some summary of the content in your answer. This helps combat linkrot. Can you edit some content into your answer, please?

comment Travelling between the UK and Norway as an Australian citizen on a standard holiday visa
Have you given up your UK passport? AFAIK, Australia allows for dual citizenship (citizenship.gov.au/current/dual_citizenship)

Unfortunately my hotel choice is restricted to a corporate-approved travel list.

Thanks for the heads-up about Basel World, that explains a lot!

@Matteo, hotels in Basel are going for > €500. So I don't think there's any danger of that!
