    I booked two award seats LHR > LAX on 12 November. I'm thinking of extending my stay(maybe a week) but my friend isn't. I wont know for a few weeks if I can extend, need to talk to the boss and see what kind of money I can save. I have not looked but I'm guessing finding at seat anytime after Nov 20th is going to be hard. Anyways.

    How would I go about changing just my ticket? (do I have to call AA or can I do it on the web)
    Are there any fees or anything I need to look out for if I do this?(like would I have to rebook my friend's seat)
    Can I change my departure city if I do decide to extend?

    Thanks for the help

    I think just a date change doesn't require any money, as long as the new date is more than 21 days out from the present date.

    By the way, I was looking for LHR-LAX flights also around then, and there are a bunch open. If you send me a PM, I can check ExpertFlyer for you.

    More AA info is here:

    Change info is towards the bottom.
