I've heard multiple reports of this happening, even though I would imagine it's not the policy and probably happens on accident. Probably something to do with the rebooking, perhaps if it's on a partner. Maybe it has to be on the JL or CX flight number? It wouldn't give you the AA EQM multiplier, but it MIGHT give you the partner one for J which would be better than the AA Y 1xEQM. All that said, you really don't have anything to lose there as worst case scenario you get your ORC of 1xEQM on the AA flight.

Even if it is JBV/ATI partners, it does not work all the time. I got burned a couple of times, including AA misconnect, rebooked on BA J, told they were sold out, I was waitlisted upon check in, and turned out I didn't even get a J or Y. Agents looked into the fare code and insisted I could only even waitlist on Y. I have tried to avoid any possible BA flight since then.

I believe they can rebook you directly in J, but it all depends on the load factors of the rebooking flight.

Highly doubt that would go through. AA agents are prohibited to backtrack and rebook when there are better options around.

Can someone give any insight if AA will bent any rules, including MPM, and valid fare basis to rebook passengers due to IRROPs?

That obviously goes without saying.

Most definitely they can and will as/if needed.

i've misconnected DFW-ICN twice in the past 6 months. PNS-DFW-ICN, was in paid first. When PNS went mechanical, told the agent to rebook in KE F. No problem. MCI-DFW-ICN (J) but had used SWU to upgrade to F. Told agent to rebook me EY DFW-AUH-ICN. No problem. But would only rebook in J not F. Understandable.

AA preserved your upgraded class of service on a non-partner (KE)? Well done! ^
