If you fly on American Airlines or were looking at booking an American Airlines ticket, now you can save an American Airlines ticket price for 7 days. Starting now you can hold and lock in your ticket price for 7 days.
This is awesome news if you need a few extra days before paying for your ticket. Here’s how holding an American Airline ticket works.
Save an American Airlines Ticket Price for 7 Days
When you get to the “Select a payment option” on the American Airlines website and you chose “Hold” you hold your ticket price. You can still hold your ticket for 24 hours. But now you can also choose from 3, 5 or 7 days.
You can choose to hold your American Airline ticket at the quoted price for:
- 24 hours – free
- 3 days – $7.99 per person
- 5 days – $9.99 per person
- 7 days – $11.99 per person
The fee applies for each person on the reservation.
If you end up not buying your ticket, the hold fees are non-refundable.
These extended holds are only offered on certain flights:
- American Airlines
- American Eagle
- Envoy Air
- SkyWest Airlines
- ExpressJet Airlines
- Republic Airlines
I’m excited about this change because it means I have more time to before I have to buy. And when you have to check with your spouse before you book tickets, a few extra days to butter them up is always a good thing. 🙂
You can now lock in and save an American Airlines ticket price for 7 days.
American Airlines offers free holds on tickets for 24 hours. If you’re not ready to pay, you can lock in your price for 3 days for $7.99 per person, $9.99 for 5 days, or $11.99 per person for 7 days.
