Reserving DONE without paying yet

I am seeking to generate an itinerary for a DONE so that I can starting applying for visas for the trip.

I don't want to pay for the DONE at this stage in case the trip doesn't go ahead for some reason.

What is the best way to generate an itinerary without paying? I know I can book through a travel agent, but will an airline let me book and itinerary, but not ticket that this stage?

I am based in Australia and when I use the online tool it directs through Qantas who give me this price:

Fare component: $14,799 AUD
Taxes and Carrier Surcharges: $1427.

Is there still a differential so that it is cheaper booking through American Airlines?
If so, can you email the proposed itinerary to them so you don't have to be on the phone for ages giving them the itinerary dates and segments?
