No seats now available on AA when there were plenty yesterday

Jump to last reply

Want to get two tickets JFK - Zurich, Jan 26-Feb 4. Put a "hold" on a FF seat (we will have enough miles only for 1 person, on Aug 20th) and looked for prices for the other person on the same flights. Found a $855 price for non-stop flights but don't want to buy it until I absolutely know I can book the FF seat.

My "hold" on the FF seat ends today but I won't get enough points until Aug 20th to actually book it. So I looked today to "rehold" (my words) my seat which means cancel the "hold" I have, and then put the same flights on hold today. This gives me a "hold" on the FF flights through Aug 20th when I can use my miles.

With me so far?

The price for the "regular" economy seat which would be for my husband was $855. Non-stop. However I looked again today and I now see that for our date for coming home, Feb. 4th - there are NO seats for the non-stop flight back to JFK. Only a connecting one on British airlines. I looked at the remaining seats available yesterday on the non-stops I want and there were plenty of available seat.

So, how could a flight get totally booked up from one day to another?
