I wouldn't throw money at it. There is still a greater than 50% chance you'll be on time.

If not, you can change to Miami, etc. Lots of options to get you there. You just have to be proactive and not rely on what any 1 AAgent tells you until you have new confirmed tickets in hand, should things go south.

$600 more on AA isn't going to "fix" any problem for you given you aren't changing carriers or to a nonstop.
