Assuming that this is AA issued,
The 24 hour counter starts at the moment the ticket is issued.

This is not new news.
They have cleaned up all the fares a few hours ago, however, the system would likely load the changes midnight Morocco time so the fare is currently bookable and probably would be bookable for the next 3 hours.

It's only the CMN-MAD segment that is having issues. MAD-CMN has no issues and indeed confirms right away. I called AA when I went to IB and saw it only had MAD-LHR-MIA for outbound. Agent dug around and said there's an issue with the schedule within the reservation system for that segment. She finally got support online and they got it to confirm but using the IB prime flight number not AA. (I would've been happy to just start in MAD, but agent wasn't having that)

Tired on Priceline.com, but it also failed when I tried to enter the passenger details, a pop up comes up indicating that the price is not available anymore.

Anyway, just keeping in this case what I booked earlier, < 1000 Euro for a First class ticket is not too shabby.

Cheers!
AA online only is allowing booking to go through with all AA marketed segments. If the IB segments are loaded as IB prime AA.com fails.

Unless you're flying tomorrow there is no need to call AA to ask about your tickets. Just wait.

I bought my tix nearly 12 hours ago and it still says on request on AA, might fall through eventually, so unfortunate!

I'm betting if you pull up on IB the CMN-MAD segment wont be there.

I called because the CMN-MAD came back unconfirmed. Calling today or a week from now wasn't going to change that.

on ITA advanced routing codes MAD LHR - LHR MAD, select calendar of lowest fares and length range, business class or higher, the calendar page shows wild range of fares eg $3003 to $14,483 - IGNORE THIS - click a date and often will reprice to A fare ($700 or $734) or F fare ($1,136) - be logged in to AA.com before selecting from bookwithmatrix, many times will get to payment page and error out "fare no longer available" but be persistent, change a date, finally can get booked. GOOD LUCK

Still easily bookable through Matrix tools on Priceline. Better hurry though! Midnight in Morocco is approaching!

Rule 1: Don't call the airlines.

I've booked tickets with IB-marketed segments on AA.com - all flights showing confirmed on IB.

No, but it does draw unnecessary attention to the fare.
