How Does the Free Checked Bag Perk Work With Citi American Airlines Cards?

Million Mile Secrets reader, Joey, commented:

I took a last minute flight to Reno from Phoenix to ski some fresh snow.  I redeemed 4,500 British Airways Avios points for an award flight instead of paying $350 each way.

However, I was expecting to get a free checked bag on American Airlines because I have the Barclaycard Aviator MasterCard and the CitiBusiness AAdvantage Platinum Select card.

Do you know if the free checked bag benefit applies on American Airlines flights booked with British Airways Avios points?  Or am I booking it wrong?  Any help on getting the free bag on American Airlines would be appreciated.

Thanks for the question, Joey!
