$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

Isn't the max 3 segments per award trip?
5 I believe
3 for domestic and CA, 4 for everything else.

looking to go anywhere
What route errored out? I found it shows routings that can be OTP and then they error out. So youd need to search segment by segment.

it never showed error messages. it just never registers that im trying to search something. i plug in some random route, a pop up comes up inviting me to use the award map, i press x, try again. same thing. weird

ETA: are you sure this award map still works? i checked a video on youtube from aa showing how the map works with a link to the page and the link doesnt work anymore...says " looks like this page has taken flight...."?

Posting this here too: Have an economy class ticket on Qantas booked with AA miles SFO to MEL for this Sunday. Award for Qantas Business class opened up and I opted to pay 55k AS miles (and pay $150 to redeposit the 40k AA miles) over 80k AA miles.

Q1. Was that a good choice?

Q2. More important: How can I avoid the $150 mile to redeposit the AA miles? (No AA Status)

Q1. If AA was willing to waive the fee due to upgrade then it would have been better with AA. Otherwise, it depends on how much YOU value the points and how you plan to use them. But it isnt a BAD deal.
Q2. If there was a change in flight time or what I wrote above.

You can always try ur luck asking for an exception due to late incoming flight, etc.
