$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

What amount of miles are the AA unpublished chart for HND to LAX? 60k? 65k? I see 65k as a Web special with "normal price" being 120K.
What amount does it need to be to be available via ba etc?

When an award hold expires do they usually become available again ?

Depends, partner or AA?
Partners sometimes and AA sometimes.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

We’re giving you more flexibility with waived award reinstatement and change fees for awards ticketed by September 8, 2020

Am I reading this correctly? AA extended the free award cancelation for flights booked till Sep 8?
