AA AAdvantage Travel Y One Way, F One Way

A family member has offered to purchase a plane ticket for me with their AAdvantage miles on AA. I was trying to book a ticket that had coach one way, and first class the other way (I've done this with US and NW... for 37,500 miles, since coach is 12,500 one-way and first is 25,000 one way). I could not figure out how to do it on AA.com. Will we need to call an agent? Is it even possible to do?

Thanks for the help in advance

(I'm flying from GSO to MIA, the ERJ n/s on the morning of May 14, then flying back on May 16 MIA-DFW-GSO (on which I would like to fly first class))

Correct. It goes by the higher segment.

Not even Y in one direction and F in the other on a one-way award basis ticketed on two separate records with two different ticket numbers?

Sure thats possible, but you would be wasting a TON of miles. Basically two separate awards.

So, in other words, it takes the same mileage for a one-way award ticket as a roundtrip award ticket in the same award type category? Or, a one-way saver ticket in Y cannot be booked for 12.5k miles vs. 25k for a roundtrip saver award in Y?

Nope. Stupid policy, I know, but one-way awards must use round trip mileage except for upgrades, which are all one way...

Sadly this is one area where AA's redemption is lacking; you cannot mix and match (other than accepting a lesser class of service on some legs).

You cannot ticket at AAnytime rates one way and sAAver the other, either.

NW handles this better, but, of course, is vastly tougher to redeem on anyways, so it's a bit of a wash.

Exactly! AA is much easier to redeem on than CO, DL, and NW. Normally I can fly AA in First for the same amount as Coach on the skyteam carriers because AA has sAAver seats available while the others don't.
