AAdvantage reprice post March 22 if price drops?
I have an award for 4 people Sri Lanka – Europe in Business class. Since Sri Lanka is moving to be Middle East/Indian Subcontinent from Asia 2 with the 3/22 changes, the price will drop 10k per person.
Much has been reported on what will be able to be done without forcing a reprice, but I have come up empty handed on how I might get repriced when I WANT the reprice. Assuming I want the award to stay more or less the same, any thoughts on how to get my 40k miles back?
I’d call AA after 3/22 and see if they can do anything about it. I dont think there is anything you can or need to do now.
If you’re an AA EXP, and there is available award space on the exact route and dates you want, you can redeposit and reissue the awards with the new miles and without any fees other than taxes.
Thanks David. Yes, I was planning on giving them a call after the 22nd to see what they would do…not holding my breath :-). Only AA Plat I am afraid!
The other option I was considering was watching for F space (not currently available) and paying a reasonable additional 10k per person to upgrade (10k taking into account the reprice that is). I will try to update the thread with my result – if anyone else has more definitive information I would love to hear it!
[USER=1691]@Baqa[/USER] I hope they can do something but like you said, I wouldn’t hold my breath. Just like they won’t collect extra mileage from people after 3/22, they also are unlikely to return mileage. Your best shot might be to upgrade to F if space opens up.
