How to Fix a Booking Error on an American Airlines Flight
The cost of the trip that you are changing will be applied to the new flight that you need. If the amount you had paid is greater than the new amount, you will be given credit for the difference toward a future flight. If the new fight is more expensive then you will need to pay the difference.
If you booked the flight through a travel agent then you will need to make the change through that travel agent.
If your original ticket was refundable, you will not owe any fee for making the change. If it wasn't, you will owe $200 for a domestic flight and as much as $750 for an international flight, depending on the distance involved.
If you change your flight on the day of travel then you may owe an additional $75 fee.
If you need help changing the booking error then you should contact American Airlines' customer service. They have a phone support line, an online help desk, and also Facebook and Twitter support options.
