Schedule changes on 10/2, starting after 12/8

Title says it... check your schedule, seems like another wave of schedule changes. The changes occur for flights after 12/8 sometime (but at least on or before 12/14).

Thumbs up

Thanks. Saw your post almost immediately and just spent an hour on the phone with AA sorting them out.

Thanks for the update! The upgrade request for the return leg of my DFW-LAS-DFW flight in early January fell off

Thanks for the heads-up We actually got better seats for the flight and the CSR was very accommodating!

That doesn't mean that there wasn't a schedule change on any of your itineraries. AA doesn't always send out notification on schedule changes.

I have a schedule change as well, seems like we have another hour to kill in the FL in ORD before our flight to London.

Exciting as it sounds, it isn't.

Definitely thanks much. Each of my upcoming itineraries has a change of some sort, whether a time change or flight changes with lost upgrade requests.

I noticed a change on a London itinerary for Feb, which intially had a deliberate 2:30 connection at DFW. The flight # changed, and the computer moved me to a later flight, giving me just 45 mins to connect. Might be legal, but didn't make me comfortable. I called the EXP desk last night and moved to an earlier SFO-DFW to work around the change.

Yes, thanks from me too. One of my flights changed time by 5 minutes, but changed flight number, and the upgrade request was ditched.

Yep... FINALLY learning how to ticket in Sabre and had the first PNR I did pop up a few days ago for a coworkers' CRP-DFW-EWR-DFW-CRP flights in late December. That was fun to sort out... but NOW I know how!

This latest batch of schedule changes brought good news. An upcoming flight was changed so that it leaves 2 minutes later than before. A previously illegal connection just became legal.

Net result is that we can get from LHR to home on the same day instead of overnighting in DFW. I called EXP desk and explained how I would have surely booked that connection if it had been available back when I bought the tickets. EXP desk saw the logic. Now we're confirmed on last flight home of the evening, instead of first flight the next morning.

I too had an upgrade request fall off for my outbound BOS-SJU (return okay). I of course went in and requested again. But my question is, now does my upgrade request revert to the time I originally requested (ie, before schedule change) or my "new" request time?

Or does the date of purchase trump all of that and this does not make a difference?
