Unless there is a compelling reason, like terrible weather or crew technical difficulties, flights are rarely changed or cancelled. But let's say a flight is postponed or altered.
According to American Airlines cancelled flight refund policy, American Airlines is the only party responsible in this scenario for a refund of the flight's cost.
The national covid policy of American Airlines provides equal reimbursement for both local and foreign travel.
The number of hours the flight is delayed and the distance travelled are two factors that go into determining how much compensation is given.
If the trip is less than 900 miles in length and the delay lasts three hours or more, American Airlines will pay you USD 275.
American Airlines will compensate you USD 450 if there is a three-hour delay on a travel between 900 and 2100 miles. American Airlines will reimburse USD 650 if the total distance travelled exceeds 2,100 miles and the delay is three hours or more.
