pretty cool idea I always have them cancel and then hope it comes back. Only fifty percent success rate.

I just added a infant to the ticket and it did not extend it I guess YMMV. Any other way to extend it?

I have an aa award redeeming for elal biz on hold. The dates aren't perfect and hoping something else opens up. Tried to get them to extend the hold but the cs said no. I thought I heard these tickets could be extended for a long time? Anyway  besides adding an infant or changing name?

I also tried adding an infant and it didn't work.

The agent saw my award was expiring in about 45 minutes, and first said you can't add an infant until you've booked the award. I told her I had been able to do it in the past and she reluctantly did. Rechecked online and confirmed with an agent that my hold deadline wasn't extended. This was for TLV-BKK through El Al, so maybe it depends on route / partner award vs. AA award.

Barely got the ticket booked with 5 min to spare, but they wouldn't waive the telephone booking fee for me  :-\
