award ticket validity 1 year of issue date

award ticket validity 1 year of issue date

    Hi, I have booked award ticket using American Airlines miles, which was originally issued on March 10, 2016. However, due to some schedule change of the flights, American Airlines automatically changed my ticket, with a new issue date, Sep 10, 2016 and a new ticket number (receipt from AA shows “exchange” and a new ticket number)

    In terms of the validity of this award ticket, is it good through March 10 or Sep 10, 2017? Thank you.

    It should be the original issue date of March 10th 🙂

    Yes [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] is correct. I had this discussion with United last year where the ticket was changed and had a new issue date different from the original issue date that starts the 1 year clock. Their argument was it’s based on the purchased (with points) date and not subsequent “re-issue” dates resulting from customer/carrier changes. It’s pretty universal I believe.
