Depending on what day you are leaving or what day your flight is, you have a couple of different options. If you are flying today, then there's a great sense of urgency and you probably should call American Airlines to discuss your options and see if you can change your flight to a later time today or tomorrow.

If you have more time to handle this issue, then you can also change your flight on time. With a little bit of planning, you should be able to access your reservation and make the change online. You should note that you will be responsible for paying the difference in the fares for the flights, and depending on what type of ticket you have, you may be subject to paying a change fee. Most tickets are non-refundable so there's usually a change fee associated with changing a flight.
