Happily, I adopted my very own recommendation of triple-checking my seat reservations particularly after I e-book far prematurely like I did our Toronto (YYZ) to Los Angeles (LAX) to Honolulu (HNL) flight for late December. I bought the American Airways (AA) firstclass one-way tickets again in February as a result of they have been on sale and cheaper than what coach price to fly LAX-HNL.
Nonetheless, to my shock I observed our routing modified in my reservations. We have been not booked on the YYZ-LAX nonstop however as a substitute placed on YYZ-ORD-LAX. At first I assumed it should’ve been as a result of I paid such a low value and there’s solely eight firstclass seats on their as soon as a day flight operated by the tiny A319.
I shortly checked to see if the AA nonstop flight was nonetheless out there and it wasn’t. So clearly, they discontinued it. I then checked Google Flights and did a calendar seek for Toronto to Los Angeles, nonstop on American Airways. Positive sufficient it’s not out there after December 18, 2018 (see screenshot under).
I’m so bummed American Airways is discontinuing their nonstop Los Angeles to Toronto and vice versa flight for a variety of causes. One is that I’m in mattress with AA’s frequent flier program so I’ve elite standing which comes with a number of perks like free upgrades, baggage, seat assignments, ticket modifications…. The opposite is that now nonstop flights between the 2 cities are solely going to go up in value since now their will likely be solely two carriers as a substitute of three (Air Canada and WestJet). The much less competitors the costlier.
In case you booked a Los Angeles – Toronto (or vice versa) ticket between the 2 cities for after December 18 test your reservations. You’ll now be connecting in both Chicago, Dallas, New York, Philadelphia or Miami.
The worst half is American by no means even alerted me of the change so I’m glad I didn’t discover out on the final minute when all of the flights are booked full. In case you’re not proud of the flight they rebooked you on name them and alter it like I’m about to. Since they modified their schedule you now have some wiggle room together with getting a refund in case you don’t wish to make a connection.
