I search from JFK or LGA typically, and it's definitely shown me all-NYC results for award searches for the past couple years at least.

I should note that this was actually the original redemption rate for all merchant GCs from TYPs until one of the many devaluations changed that. But good news that this is back (if only because not...

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but new functionality to select your seat on AS through AA.com appears to have been implemented. At least this is the case when booked on an AA code...

Interesting. I was wondering if it had been done on the 11th (when, as beachfan noted, the euro got crushed) in which case Amex could be slightly lagged, but a 2 day lag seems very odd.

Thanks all for the advice.

I ended up giving up hope on the change (though I really don't want a refund--I paid $160 for the RT and want the miles!) and so decided to check availability one last...

I was on the same flight as the OP (or at least on the same plane). Couple minor clarifications:

Where exactly are you seeing this stuff about a 12-hour rule? AFAIK, the only thing in the fare rules about 12 hours pertains to Same-Day Confirmed changes. Note that this requires the changed...

Note this also books into H. This means there's a ton of availability and is fully refundable. Also bookable as one-ways which has not been true for AA's lowest-priced fares from EWR-LAX.
