$75 fee:

-21+ days prior to departure is based on the departing city time zone, not the booking city time zone.

EDIT: I managed to call in and have them waive the fee when it was within 21 days in departing city time zone but not by booking city time zone

You can request that AA open up space on a domestic leg when booking an international award ticket.
Thanks.

Nope, their wait time is notoriously long. Put your phone on speaker so you'll hear when someone picks up and do other stuff meanwhile.

I got them on the phone and it is available while it is not available on the website. There is a $25 USD charge per person to do it on the phone. Is there any way out of that? Thanks again for all your help

Just tell them it isn't available online and you had no choice but to call.
