Called AA. Took <5 min. Got my aa ff number and free bags showed up right away. Hold times are random. Sometimes immediate sometimes hours. Status or not. Same goes for every airline. Can't keep bagging on aa for EVERYTHING
wait until you take the flight that's when the bagging will begin

Great Find op, was playing around for a while, back (1-2 months ago)Could not understand what I was doing wrong as I have used finniar many times to update my ticket.

 Thanks a lot.

I'm feeling nostalgic right now reading this thread. I miss the 4.5K avios days.

Along with the $1.00 NYC subway rides (or should I mention the $0.75 or $0.90 rides), or the $2.00 toll to cross over from NJ into NYC.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Any place to edit AA booking made on AA? Finnair, BA, Qatar, Qantas, Alaska, JetBlue don't work.

I don't think that works anymore.
It worked a few years ago.

Call or DM AA on Twitter?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I guess. I want to associate my Alaska MVP FFN to the reservation, but I used two main seat extra coupons (from the AAdvantage 40 years anniversary promo) to pick Premium Economy seats sold as main cabin extra, and officially the AA account it comes from has to be on the reservation, so I'm afraid I will lose the seats if I switch the FFN number (Alaska MVP can only choose Main Cabin Extra 24 hours before the flight).
