I booked 2 seats to Boston on Aer Lingus using Avios for this summer a couple of weeks ago. There seemed to be some kind of minor technical hitch when the agent pressed the button to confirm the booking, she went off to speak to a supervisor, came back a few minutes later and told me it was all fine. The issue is that I didn't receive an email confirmation from BA and the the Avios weren't taken from my account, BUT the booking exists in my BAEC account, my credit card has been charged the correct taxes, the reservation looks fine on CheckMyTrip (including eticket numbers for both passengers - the status says "eticket processed" then the date I booked, which I think means it's ok?), and I was even able to select seats by calling Aer Lingus. Anyone had a similar experience and what happened (no judgement either way! - personally I'm gong to call them regardless - it's just something I can't remember seeing before and found interesting).
