Major schedule change, how will AA handle this?

Jump to last reply

We were scheduled to fly to Naples via AA/Air Berlin using award tickets. We purposely avoided any BA flights due to the high fees they charge for "free" tickets. Now it seems Air Berlin has changed their schedule so it is no longer possible to get to NAP except to use AA/BA. This means an additional $300+ for each ticket as BA is now in the mix.

I found this change on line and I haven't called AA yet because I haven't decided what to do. I do not want to pay the extra fees and I have considered changing it so we will fly into Rome then we could take the train to Naples. Since our only option is to use BA, do you think AA will absorb the fees for us? I'm thinking not but I wonder if anyone out there has had the same experience.

Thanks.
