Could not find Non-stop ORD-MAD-ORD on AA.com

Trying to book in-laws for December travel. I know there is a direct ORD-MAD-ORD through Iberia but on AA flight number. All I could find involves a stop at either DFW or MIA. Did AA eliminate this non-stop routing?

Thank you.

It is an IB flight not an AA flight.
So AA can not eliminate, it is NOT, their flight.
The IB6274 flight is scheduled to go only Tuesday-Sunday (no Monday's)

Thanks zman.

I don't see any direct flight from ORD to MAD on 19 December at AA.com.

If I switch a week earlier, 12 December, I see ORD-MAD on AA 5682 operated by Iberia.

If I go to Iberia.com, I see that IB 6274 you mentioned above operating on 19 December.

On Dec. 19 AA has sold old their allotment of seats so it is zero'd out.
and IB is sold out in Coach but has Business available.

AA only operates to MAD from DFW and MIA, and starting next year, from JFK with the 75L.

Are you selecting "All Carriers" in the search options instead of the default "AA and Codeshares"?

The OP clearly knows he's asking about a codeshare flight operated by IB. It's always helpful to read a thread before posting to it.

It looks like 12/19 will be an expensive date to travel, as even connecting flights from ORD have very little, if any, Y availability.

I've been looking for the same flights, same period.
Amadeus (and the AA pdf timetable, as well as iberia.com) still show ORD-MAD as daily except Monday, on Iberia, throughout December or January. And it is still bookable. Cutting it to just twice a week would be pretty drastic. I wonder when/if such cuts would be visible online.

The flight won't show up on AA.com even if you go under "Flight Schedules" and select "All Airlines" and "Check Flights Regardless of Availability", even though it should be there.

OP: please report to web services, www.aa.com/contactaa

Anyone else notice that AA has changed the numbering on the IB code shares starting later this autumn? They used to be 62XX and now they are 56XX. Something to do with the upcoming ATI decision? Any other code share numbering changes you've noticed?
