This is spot on. As the OP is still confirmed in J/C class for PHL-EDI there is close to zero chance that a DTW agent will rebook the OP - let alone rebook to BA or issue a FIM to allow the OP to travel OAL. It is not going to happen. Period. No sane agent at DTW would do that as any unassigned seats is likely to resolved at the gate in PHL by e.g. no-show, misconnections, blocked seats becoming available etc. May I remind you that thousands of times each day pax receive a BP without seat assignment at check-in at the initial departure point, and pax will have to proceed to the gate of the onward flight to get a new BP with seat assignment. If agents were to rebook pax just because of no seat being assigned for the onward flight, it would turn into chaos.

I'm still very confident that the OP will be able to board the AA flight to EDI - and with seats in J/C class.
