I hope KVS will approve my request to use its tool (I am awaiting their response), as I suspect that will be helpful in allowing me to find availability on my own, before calling back to AA.
I am open to other suggestions.
Attempt 1 (without KVS): spent several minutes on the phone with AA and never came up with an acceptable 3rd flight, so just gave up. (See quote above.)

Attempt 2 (After using KVS): 12 minutes on the phone with AA and I had all 14 segments reserved!!! Thank you KVS!!
