Aadvantage Award cancellation and miles redeposit
I have advantage award flights travelling from the US to India in the summer that i booked last year. I called in Aadvantage to cancel and redeposit those miles back to my account since we did not want to travel this year with everything going on currently with Covid. Aadvantage Rep says they are only refunding the miles without fees for partner flights only if the partner cancels the flight or there is a schedule change. Its only American flights that they are cancelling and refunding without fees right now. Otherwise i will have to pay the redeposit fees of up $600 for the whole family. Is there any other way to ask for a miles redeposit without having to pay the miles redeposit fees.
Thanks in Advance
Praveen, hang up and try again. I bet a different agent will be more sympathetic and help you out. I cancelled a flight on British Airways, booked on AA miles, last week and got the miles redeposited for free.
