$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

UPDATE: AA has removed all close-in fees

Booked a round trip to Europe with miles, and called to  add infant they are charging me over $200.
Even though the ticket price is about $900 (so 10% would be $90).
Anyone with experience?

you are lucky its not more!
Yes it stings though. I usually put AA on hold and call to find out infant fare beforehand. Or book with BA and infant is 10% of miles!

American is not alone on this one. I believe several other airlines have the same policy
