This is a common problem with AA and SCL flights twice each year with time change in Chile that something gets messed up for a little while each time the clocks change. As an earlier poster pointed out, the dep/arr times are correct, but the calculation of flight duration is incorrect. (Which is better than in the past when AA suddenly change the departure times by an hour just days before time change to maintain the same arrival times state-side; this time they seem to have planned ahead correctly!)

To be fair to the developers, the date of DST ending changed this year from May to April reasonably recently. When I was looking into this a week or two ago the durations for SCL-DFW were only incorrect between the “new” time change date (weekend of April 7) and the “old” time change date in May. After that durations were correct.
