AA partner award redeposit
I currently have seats in J on AA partner award ORD-AUH but if A380 F opens up a couple days prior to departure I’m going to see about changing our booking. Question: assuming EY opens the space a couple days out (seems common right now) how long does it take for AA partner award miles to credit back to the FF account in your experience? I don’t have enough to do a new booking we would be relying on the miles crediting back to complete the new JFK-AUH booking and this is the only uncertainty I have with trying to make the switch last minute.
Pretty much instantly. You could pay the fee to have the agent change the booking instead and not worry about not having enough miles. There’s a fee to cancel and redeposit anyway.
