$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

Rumors are that Etihad will be leaving their partnership with AA, per Richard Kerr via FB...

“RUMOR: Etihad to join Star Alliance, leave American partnership. As early as the end of March.

Multiple sources leaking this info, seems semi-solid at this point. A lot of ramifications obviously but I expect the larger blogs to pick this up by the morning.

- If you are looking at Etihad avail to book with AA miles. BOOK NOW
- Expect availability to disappear tomorrow/Monday or Etihad to immediately cut off AA bookings.
- I can see a situation where Etihad makes A380 apartments not bookable through Star Alliance partners; a la Singapore.
- IMO this is a move for Etihad to extract themselves from the current financial hardship.

No other details at this point and this is by no means confirmed. Will keep this post updated as we go.”
good thing I liquidated my stash of AA on 2 rt etihad apartment redemptions lol :P

In their hardships ending this relationship will do little help, and joining *A will only add to the financial burden. Seems like either just a rumor, or a not well thought out plan, scraping the bottom.
Fingers crossed.

Is the new AA award search an indicator that they're moving towards dynamic pricing?

I think you're confusing Web Special with SAAver. It seems like there are Web Specials on AAnytime awards now...

Either way, this is starting to look like AA is going Delta on us. ...except for the service and operational reliability of course.

You're correct. I didn't realize the web special was anything different than a discount on sAAver.
