I’ve got some BA miles, and was planning to use them for an Aer Lingus flight (part of the One World Alliance) from Boston to Dublin this summer.  I just called BA to book it, and was told that Aer Lingus is pulling out of One World and all flights would have to be completed by 3/31. 
So, I remembered that American Airlines (also part of Oneworld) did a codeshare with Aer Lingus on flights from BOS-DUB.  However, I can’t seem to find anything about that anywhere.  Does anyone know if that still exists?  And if so, do you think I’d be able to book that flight using my BA miles?  So essentially, I’d be using BA miles to book an AA codeshare, but would really be flying on an Aer Lingus flight. 
And just so you understand the reason I want to fly on Aer Lingus is that it’s the only direct flight to Dublin.  After Dublin, we’ll be headed to Bilbao.  And I’ll be travelling with my wife, two year old, and a young infant.  Thanks in advance…

Have you tried logging on at to book a reward flight? If this flight will be available for the time you want, then you should be able to book it if it’s a codeshare. Otherwise, ring the airlines reward reservations directly to find out. I’ve not flown any of those airlines in 4 years, so I’m not really up with what’s going on with their award bookings.
