What do you see on AA.com? A better selection, further forward for free as OWE, and then others as paid?Been a few years since I last flew on AA metal. As a OWE I had the pick of most the plane. This is what I'm seeing on the seat map now when logged into QF. A flights are part of a QF booking. I'm sure previously I could grab MCE seats but even without them, this is pretty far back. Any ideas?
That site has been very flakey for more than a week, and trying multiple browsers. I find that I need to keep on trying and sometimes I can eventually get in to view the booking.I get an error when looking it up by name and PNR on AA …
Are you booked on the QF or AA flight number?
Try putting your booking into BA’s MMB. They have a direct link to AA.

With AA, I may get to select seats further forward than those offered on the QF site. MCE selection is $$. MCE is often 6 rows, although is variable (legacy US Airways, and other aircraft).
Edit: Does that Row 16 seat have any recline?
No (well virtually no) difference now between QF and AA earn rates since the JV signed.AA flights have a QF flight number. Good for earn rate at least.
BA finds it but no option for seat selection. Same with QR and RJ actually.
Quite possibly not but its a short hop from LAX to LAS so I'm not too fussed. I just grabbed a seat in the interim. Might still change it.

BA site is good if it’s an AA flight. If it’s QF you have to do it on QF.
AA removed MCE for all Oneworld mid-top status holders 01 Oct 2020. For a week or so that included BAEC, but MCE was reinstated for them.
Effective immediately, AA’s partner elites will no longer receive complimentary access to the airline’s extra-legroom Main Cabin Extra seating. This policy change has been updated on AA’s Main Cabin Extra webpage, and we’ve reached out to the carrier for more details. In fact, TPG tested booking a British Airways elite on an AA flight and confirmed that Main Cabin Extra seating is no longer free.

I take it AA lounge access for QF OW Emeralds is still on?
