American has made a modest improvement to their Same-Day Flight Change policy and added the benefit of being able to make same-day flight changes online. The fees remain unchanged.
Beginning 24 hours prior to departure, you can request a same-day flight change on aa.com through the check-in window. Just select each passenger who is requesting a flight change and pay the $75* per passenger charge.
There were some reports in the forums that American was waiving the $75 fee for some AAdvantage elites, sources at AA later confirmed that the policy remains the same: AAdvantage elite customers can travel for free on standby, or make a same-day confirmed change for $75.
Here’s a new graphic that briefly explains Same-Day Flight Change options.
Here’s the new option that appears under your reservation.
Have a great weekend!
