No More Change Fees for American Airlines International Tickets

American Airlines has taken yet another step in giving customers complete flexibility when they travel on American. The carrier will no longer charge change fees for nearly all long-haul international flights when travel originates in North or South America. Only travelers on Basic Economy tickets will continue to pay change fees for long-haul international flights.

“We are committed to making travel easier for our customers who fly on American,” said American’s Chief Revenue Officer Vasu Raja. “By eliminating change fees, we’re giving customers more flexibility no matter when or where they plan to travel.” This is a big change for an airline that until a few months ago was known for its high change fees.

Effective immediately, American will eliminate change fees for First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy and Main Cabin (except Basic Economy) tickets for all long-haul international flying. This new policy matches American’s previous announcement to get rid of change fees on most domestic and short-haul international flying.

Earlier this year as it was trying to lure back passengers, American Airlines stopped charging change fees on domestic and short-haul international flying. That policy also applies to all fare types except Basic Economy tickets.

As a reminder, American allows customers to keep the full value of eligible tickets if they change their travel plans prior to their scheduled travel. Although customers will have to pay the fare difference for a new flight, customers will not lose their ticket value if the new flight is less expensive.
