To change your American Airlines flight, follow these steps:
- Log in to your AAdvantage account or input your name and six-digit record locator on the American Airlines website.
- Find your upcoming trip and select the flight you’d like to change.
- Choose ‘Change trip’ in the top toolbar.
- Follow the prompts to select a new flight.
You can also make the change at the airport (self-service kiosk or ticket counter) or by calling Reservations at 800-433-7300 (English) or other language-specific phone numbers.
American Airlines allows same-day confirmed changes on select flights for a fee, with some exceptions. You can request a same-day flight change on aa.com, at the airport, or by calling Reservations. The alternate flight must be for the same origin and destination, and your flight change can only be confirmed within 24 hours of departure of the desired flight.
Please note that charges or penalties may apply for changes, depending on the fare paid for the ticket. If you’re unable to make your flights, contact Reservations prior to your flight’s departure to retain the value of your ticket.
For flights booked with points, there’s no charge to change an American Airlines award flight, though you’ll need to pay any additional miles that are due for your new flight.
