In the grander scheme of things, you have just booked two (I guess) premium cabin flights from the US to somewhere via Doha, and 40 USD is not a significant number in that picture.
I would also venture the guess that the reason you transfered to JMB rather than AA is that the burn rate is more attractive, and as long as it is more attractive than 40 USD your are still ahead.

What would have annoyed me in the story would have been the hold time for the call centre
