LOL. Because most of us here would rather schlep to the train station and take a 4hr train ride and/or add multiple stops to avoid flying in Y on an 8-hour flight.

Personally, what irks me about the situation is that if the flight is indeed oversold, AA will probably get away with downgrading OP and throwing a few miles at the situation. Even though AA could do much better—especially since OP caught the situation in advance.
