SDC has a few factors with it .... status and fare class ... however, per (http://www.aa.com/i18n/utility/sameDayTravel.jsp) it states the same calendar day, so a person asking for a Wednesday August 5th 9am flight can't normally ask for a August 4th 8pm flight under normal conditions. The only thing that I think would allow this if say you are an EXP and some cancellation event is occuring. E.g. I had a flight from CMI-SJC one evening, and in the afternoon I noticed that my 6am flight was cancelled due to weather issues ... the EXP line changed everything from CMI to IND for me and I was able to hop on a IND-LAX and flew to SJC the following morning ....
