In a world with only American Airlines, this strategy might work. However, Delta, United, Southwest would love to see American try that. Fortunately, we still have choices and American would lose significant business if they charge for changing non-refundable tickets.

oh for the "good old days" ..guess i am showing my age but i remember the days when there were no change fees,tickets in coach were actually refundable, and basically there was only first class and coach,without all of the hundreds of restrictions and yxeq2 or ymew7 type fares,and of course the frequent flyer programs!what one airline does, the others also do...
