I booked an American off peak award one way to Hawaii for August 29 for 17,500 miles a while back. The itinerary was as follows: IAH (leave 12:45 pm) - LAX (arrive 2:20 pm) on American LAX (leave 4:40 pm) - LIH (arrive 7:23 pm) on American American no longer flies the the evening LAX - LIH segment on that date, so they changed my flights and I didn't even get an email about it. They changed my flights without notice to the following: IAH (leave 1:35 pm) - LAX (arrive 3:00 pm) on American LAX (leave 8:55 am) - LIH (arrive 11:45 am) on American Yes, they have me going from LAX to LIH before I even get to LAX... ridiculous! Upon talking to American, they tell me the only routing now available is Houston - DFW - HNL - LIH which I verified. The HNL - LIH is served by Hawaiian Airlines. I was told that to change my award now will cost 5000 additional AA miles because HNL - LIH now has to be booked as a separate award. Is American Airlines within their rights to do this? After all, it is their schedule change that is causing the problem. Should I have to pay extra miles now for a ticket that I have already paid for? Please advise.
