Canceling award flight
Perhaps a silly question, but here goes…I am very tempted to book a flight using AA miles before the devaluation on March 22. However, the potential travel dates are almost a year in the future, and I am worried that plans might change and I will have to cancel the flights. Is it possible to cancel award flights without losing all your miles?
And even though I am asking about AA, I wonder in general – are there some airlines that treat this kind of situation better than other airlines do?
You can cancel your trip and get all your miles back. However, if you do not have status, it is $150 (per ticket i believe) and if there are others on the reservation, i believe its $25 per additional pax
