Hoping someone would offer some tips in getting a change in Aadvanatge Award International travel.. I have a family member travelling between DFW-BLR(India)-DFW on AAdvantage Economy. She has already travelled on the outbound and due to a death in the family wants to postpone the return. I need to rebook the return BLR-LHR-BOS-DFW ( on BA/AA) to around July 28 or later ..
I have called Aadvantage travel desk several times and having a hard time in getting the date. I am prepared to pay extra change fees. I feel the agents are not looking for all options are just checking the main option between BLR-DFW via LHR.
Also, after travel commenced, AA changed the award rules to allow one way, and rountdtrip in economy and biz on same itinerary. I have enough miles to upgrade the return portion to biz class and seats are available, but the agents say it is not possible.
Any tips or options available ? Between AA, 9W, BA, CX, Finnair and JAL, I am prettu sure, there must be 1 award seat available between BLR-DFW arounf July 28-Aug7. Trouble is AA agents are not looking hard enough.
Can any of the A netters offer any advice/tips on options ?
