Ticket prices Go Down

Couldn't find any other threads on this. What if ticket prices go down after I have purchased? any chance of a refund of the difference? this is on AA

If you had bought a non-refundable ticket on AA, your only option is to cancel/change your original ticket for a fee, then reissue the new ticket at the lower price.

Since the change fee is usually $150+, it's not worthwhile unless the ticket price drop is substantial and offsets the change fee.

And if the drop in price is greater than the change fee, AA will issue the $ in an e-voucher form for future use, not a true refund in terms of cash.

If your ticket is bought as a full fare refundable ticket, then all you need to do is get a full refund and buy a new ticket at the new lower price.

Try signing up with yapta.com You fill out a form that lists your exact flights, dates and price paid.

They have a service [free] that will track current fares and email you if the fare drops enough to make the change worthwhile.
