I have read mixed opinions about re-holding an AA award flight online after the 5 day period has expired and I’m curious to hear of others experiences of being able to re-hold an award flight after the 5 days has expired. I’ve read that award space could be recalculated and those 2 spaces I’m holding may not be released back into inventory after my hold expires. So far this has not happened to me! To put this in a bit more of perspective, I am holding the last 2 business awards available within a 3 day period to my destination, unless I want to fly BA and pay the ridiculous fuel surcharges! I’ve been holding the flight for the past 2 weeks and plan to book next week as part of a larger Explorer award. So far I haven’t had any problems and need to hold the flight another 9 days before I have enough miles to book the 2 awards. Anyone else have experience doing this?
