The answer to your question is upthread, and included courtesy accommodation at DFW and onward travel the next day.

I do take this flight often and have two middle school age kids so I'm interested if there was any resolution to what happened to the kids?

thanks

The 4 seats blocked are to reduce the number of flight attendants required for the flight. Apparently AA feels the cost of having a flight attendant exceeds the revenue that would be gained from selling the seats. I am sure someone at AA did the math on this. I don't see that as ridiculous

The ridiculous part is that 3 FAs for 150 passengers is considered safe and normal, but 3 FAs for 151 passengers is unsafe and triggers a hefty fine/penalties. Arbitrary government rules may be preferable to an unregulated market, but being the lesser of two evils isn't the same as being good.
