AA OneWorld Award – Date + Route Change without redeposit?
Hi All –
Apologies if this has been clarified already somewhere (tried searching but couldn’t find anything definitive), but I’ve booked a OneWorld partner award with AA miles pre-deval and understand that I should be able to make changes to the date/time/route without forcing a reprice after 3/22 as long as I keep the origin and destination the same and stay on OneWorld partners. Can you change any of those variables in combination and avoid redepositing miles, or are you limited to one at a time (i.e. only date or route change, not both at the same time).
Well, technically you have to have the same governing carrier — so changing from JFK>LHR>JNB to JFK>DOH>JNB might not technically be allowed, though in practice it generally has been.
But you can certainly change dates and times, and you can change your American flights around that connect to the partner flights with no issues.
