-1 you really think that $2.50 is the norm for a fuel surcharge and taxes to any INTL dest??  :o
The system is is still being worked on as it's in the beginning stages. I'd be shocked if they don't up the taxes on this baby.
It is just like when SWA announced it's INTL launch. They weren't charging taxes in the begining. But they sure corrected it in due time. Congrats to all those who got in. #longliveavios
not so sure about that, normal with BA, IINM AA also has this tax rate on ex. US flights

Not because I've actually found avail, but this flight should technically be bookable with AA too, right?

As long as there is availability, do they charge a lot to make a date change after booking?
Or is it possible to change the return date once you're in TLV?

Right just making sure that this was known, as I've seen plenty of US flights on AA.com recently. So why is this exciting? Seems like most ppl have more AA miles than Avios.

If there is availability, you could cancel and rebook. All it will cost you in this case if the taxes.

great, Thanks!  To play it safe, and if I have enough miles, then I could first book the new flight and then cancel the old one, right?
