$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

Are you on a mobile device? If yes, did you make sure to request desktop site?
Had that problem last week, changing to desktop site helped.

Seems like a married segment issue. Some had luck when putting on hold and then call a(n) (experienced) representative to separate them.

Not for a while already. Regardless it would be an inexperienced rep.

Also any way to get around the bs $75 close-in fee? Don't have gold status anymore. Does Hyatt explorist match to gold?

Not sure if this is the right place to put this but AA is offering free status upgrade to Platinum Pro.  Its free until April, and if you get 2400 eqd or 20000eqm you can keep that status through jan 21, 2021.  Its under promotions
