British Airways code share

Jump to last reply

We are planning a late summer trip fron the DC area to Milan using AA FF miles. I have done this before on AA that requires one leave on American Eagle to JFK. I have had to fly American Eagle many times and have never found them reliable - the Milan trip for example was as messed up as it could be including a missed connection with the Milan flight even with a cushion of more than three hours.

I see on the AA site that there is a code share with BA that has a better schedule for my needs that connects in Heathrow. The BA flight arrives in Linate rather than Malpensa. I am used to arriving in Malpensa but know nothing of Linate, e.g., connections to Milan Central Station - I will be traveling to Lake Maggiore.

I have never used a code share with AA before (listed as "American Airlines operated by British Airways." Is there a downside to taking this option when using AA FF miles?
