Shhh… Free AA Main Cabin Extra & Preferred Seating Glitch!

by Adam S.

If you have an existing AA award booking you may be in luck. My buddy Peter sent me a text a few minutes ago and said he was able to select Main Cabin Extra & Preferred seats for free on the domestic and international legs of his next trip. It worked for his wife too who’s on a separate PNR. Both currently don’t hold any status with AA.

After performing some quick tests, it seems this is only working for existing award bookings. It does not seem to work on new cash or award reservations.

Obviously this is a DO NOT CALL situation, so don’t call AA to switch your seats. You can switch seats by logging into your account, selecting your itinerary, and clicking the change seat icon. Clearly this is a temporary glitch so act now.

Hat tip to my buddy Peter!

Update – AA has unfortunately fixed the glitch…
