J7 D7 I0 for our date of travel, so wondering if I processed a BXP1 on my I class ticket if it'd return the inventory. Gut says no, but an EXP agent said something to a similar degree. Or I can just wait and hope the price drops .
Just like with award/upgrade inventory, not necessarily. When an award or revenue ticket is cancelled, it doesn't necessarily mean that the original fare/award/upgrade bucket will return automatically. AA's revenue management system will crunch the numbers to determine what happens with the extra space.
