American Airlines Refund Policy

There are some tickets falling under specific categories which cannot give a refund on cancellation but apart from that majority of the times it is expected from the company to provide you with refunds on time for your canceled tickets.

Tickets, services as well as optional products which are purchased within the United States of America will demand a time period of 7 working days to initiate and generate the refund if you have paid for the same using credit or debit cards. Also sometimes the time period may vary depending upon your Credit Card Company’s rules and regulations. If you have paid for the tickets and other things with cash or cheque, then the refund will be initiated within 20 working days.

A refund on credit card purchases will be submitted in the same credit card account only. Also sometimes services charges can be demanded in case of some refunds which are mostly rare cases only.

Once I booked a ticket on American Airlines flight but within few hours i had to cancel it due to some emergency. I got all the money back in my card because of American Airlines 24 hours refund policy.

hello, I had booked a ticket on American Airlines two weeks ago and I had to cancel the reservations due to unavoidable reasons. I called up their customer service number to cancel my ticket. the customer agent informed me that I am entitled to get a refund on my ticket. I was really happy to know as I had no idea about American airline's refund policy.
