Thread closed for clean-up. /Moderator

Clean-up complete. Swaths of off-topic posts have been removed. Folks, this thread is discussing the mechanics of handling a price drop on a booked AA itinerary. This is NOT the place to discuss VAT, federal and personal income taxes, intra-EU customs, Southwest Airlines, or US retail store practices. Please take those discussions to the more appropriate fora. Thanks much for your understanding and cooperation. /Moderator

Depends on the kind of credits you get issued. If you've been issued a Trip Credit as part of a refare and then subsequently cancel, you might end up with a Flight Credit for the rest of the ticket value. You can't combine the Flight Credit and Trip Credit when making a new reservation.

Just make the "change" and trip credit will be added to your wallet.
I used to do this all the time... but then some time last year it went away, and I either wasn't offered the same exact flight or if I was, I was only shown the upfare to First Class. If it's back, that'll be nice, because I've ended up needing to call..
