Booked a AMS-SAN fare and the booking site (AA) showed my JFK-LAX-JFK legs as "First", but when I look at the reservation it's a 2-2 business cabin on an A32T.

Any idea if there is any recourse to get AA to correct the booking to the cabin that was shown on the booking page (F)? I assume not.

There is no F class service to SAN. Only three class service within US is to LAX and SFO from JFK.

The correct cabin is business. The booking page is just displaying it wrong. It goes based on booking code (I = J cabin)

Yes, I was referring to the JFK-LAX and LAX-JFK legs.

Thank you for posting. I booked Finnair with AA numbers on the long-haul to SFO, for 125% on JAL. Very convenient since I needed a flight back from Europe in May.
