Eventually I got it to work two days later, which I thought would be moot because I cancelled in the 24 hour window. And after calling in, they've said there's nothing they can refund me because I booked it on the "Portuguese website" and so only the fare rules apply. I've filed a complaint with USDOT and just received a short unapologetic response from TAP's US customer service.

I'll reply, copying the USDOT representative, but I'm not optimistic
What was the outcome? I booked a flight yesterday and then it went down today, so I wanted to cancel and re-book for the savings. But, I'm hoping it's not a painstaking process given US DOT regulations...
