Whatever the reason for your trip cancellation is, now that you have made American airlines book a flight, you need to cancel it. This blog will detail out all the information required to cancel

your flight, so keep reading. 

Current Covid-19 Cancellation Policies

In retaliation to the Covid-19 pandemic, American Airlines has waived the change fee on business, Premium, Economy, main cabin, and economy. You can cancel your flight online or reschedule it for any other date without a change fee. 

American has also waived the change fee on new International flights, conducting from outside North or South America. 

As of November 2020, American Airlines has abolished all the redeposit fees and cancellation fees on the award tickets. 

American Airlines policies on the tickets paid via points or cash 

Each customer is entitled to a free flight cancellation within 24 hours of the original flight confirmation, irrespective of the selected fare. 

Economy Tickets 

American Airlines does not allow the refund to the basic economy tickets unless the request is made within 24 hours of the purchase. However, certain situations can allow you to receive the refund, i.e., if the airlines reschedule the flight by four hours or if (extremely pathologically) you or your person dies. 

Non Refundable Tickets

In case of domestic flight cancellation, the fee is $200. However, if you cancel the international flights, the fee is supposed to be $750. 

American Airlines allows its customers to reuse the ticket value for another trip (planned within not more than one year of the ticket issue date) if they cancel the flight on the day of departure. 

Refundable Tickets

If you have purchased the refundable flight tickets, the cancellation can be made anytime, the refund will be issued to the first credit card within seven days, and the statement will show up in the 1st or 2nd billing cycle. 

The Award Ticket 

In November 2020, American Airlines abolished elimination or redeposited and cancellation feed on all the flights. 


Through this article’s medium, we hope we could elaborate on the changing and cancellation policies of American Airlines. Passengers can cancel their flights with no cancellation fees if the cancellation is made within 24 hours of the purchase or have military orders. Or, in the worst-case scenario, you or one of your travel companions die.
