OP's original post was rather unclear (I wish people asking for help would take the time to state the issue clearly), but I guessed her flight had been cancelled, not just that her seats were no longer assigned. I didn't understand her comment that "they" wouldn't let her cancel the flight; thought she must be talking about her family who didn't want to drive.

As already noted, if the issue is the flight was canceled, she has the choice of booking on another flight at no extra cost or getting a refund. Not the end of the world; something will be worked out.

Hi to the OP (Callalily6)... We're all in suspense now.

Did we understand the situation correctly? (Your actual flights were cancelled, but AA had not yet assigned you to other flights.)

How did you resolve the matter with American?

So which is it - they canceled your flight or not? If they canceled it, there's nothing for you to cancel. If they didn't, then what is the problem?

I PM'd the OP yesterday asking that she come back and let us know what happened. I'm curious to learn how American is dealing with their customers.

I hate it when posters leave us hanging!

We probably won't know for a while, if ever. It appears the OP left yesterday.

While American is the only airline that serves my hometown airport, and that's where most of my FF miles are - I usually don't fly American to Florida. However, next week I'm flying from Chicago to Orlando on American because I got a really good fare, so I hope my flights will be okay. I have been checking my ORD-MCO flight the past few days, and it hasn't been cancelled. Now - if AA wants to cancel my flight home on October 3 and leave me "stuck" at WDW for a few extra days - I won't complain too much!
