Presumably chase if it was a Y ticket.
Amex. Was for a J ticket.

Annoying thing is that my positioning flights from PIT - BOS and YYZ - PIT will negate the free bags

doesn't say that

it appears they must cancel within 72 hours of becoming aware of error
Read it again. It says they will make an effort. Not that if they don't cancel within 72 the purchase cannot be cancelled in the future. I expect since this was very high profile it'll be addressed soon, as DOT would require them to cover non refundable travel expenses.

IMO the reasonable effort refers to their method of notifying the customer. ie they will use email or phone but if their message goes to spam or your service stinks and they cannot reach you by phone, they've done a reasonable effort to notify the customer.

They should need to be able to explain what the reasonable effort is if they are past the 72 hours.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

That seems accurate to me.

Can an argument be made that YQ is not subject to this, as it is not the fare, but rather a surcharge?

Not sure if we need to be arguing any of this, as we don't know if AC will try to void the tickets. Was there any official communication? After all, this made global news, was available on all platforms, and travel agents sold many tickets ex-TLV besides for whatever was generated by DDMS and other US based travel websites.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If you could make it non-stop from IAH in business class for chanukah that would be great, thanks.
