Pdb - we found this to be common with AA - we did 18 flights with them in April - all bar 4 sectors were YUPS. All bar two of the flights were subject to schedule changes. In each case we just rang and suggested alternative flights and or routings to maximise tier credits. We even ended up on more convenient flights (= longer routings ) which were more expensive at the time we did our original booking. All was done without hesitation or questioning. I think AA's rule is something like 'anything more than 30 minutes' change gives pretty much carte blanche to change. At least that was our fortune!
