AA Flight to EZE [change origin and avoid change fee?]

Hi,

I've booked an open-jaw AA flight 4 days ago - AMS - EZE - LON with a 13 hour layover on the outbound journey.

I looked around today and found that leaving from Paris will avoid the 13 hour layover. Spoke to AA and they said I would have to pay 130 fee.

Is there any way of avoiding this fee or cancelling the ticket altogether and booking a new one. My ticket is non refundable...

I know it's a long-shot but any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

The only hope at this time is if there should be a schedule change that will allow you to cancel the trip. The next best thing would be trying for a standby the day of flight. Good luck.

Well, you said it yourself, the ticket is non refundable, so while your question to FT shows great faith in participants ingenuity, cancelling a non refundable ticket because you found a better routing/timing is pretty much your choice, so you're out of luck.
