Booking a flight on American Airlines website from within Chile

Post by papageno » Fri Aug 24, 2018 11:15 am

I went on to the AA website, which automatically redirected me to the ".cl" version. It accepted the points of destination and return( In this case, LAX and EZE respectively). and the departure date, but the return date field appeared frozen. I can't find any way around this, or a way to access the US site. Anyone have an idea what the problem is? Technical, licensing, etc.? I don'thave any problems with 3rd party booking sites like CheapOAir, Orbitz or Kayak. Nor did I have any problems booking a flight from LAX to Colorado Springs on United, through its website.

Upper right hand corner, you can choose US site and language.
Generally, just a SPAM KILLER. You are on your own in this forum. My personal mission here is done.

BUT when necessary, by way of ridicule and truth revelation we shalt do war.

BTW, I believe today is the last day of LATAM's 18% discount offer to the US, I pikced up SCL-LAX non-stop RT for $734 all-in.

Right, that worked. On FlyerTalk it seemed other people had encountered the same problem, and the solution is what you just stated.
