I called the EXP line--to change to the am flight I have to pay the fee change and the change in fare--for a flight that was less costly to begin with--only because AA changed the equipment. According to the rules--change of equipment does not qualify for a change in flights.
The afternoon flight that you chose is still an afternoon flight, operating nonstop, departing and arriving at the same time. Why would you expect to be able to change flights without a fee on a cheap non-refundable ticket?
