Introduction

There are two types of awards discussed in this thread, AA Awards and All-Partner (All-Airline) Awards, which are targeted to passengers traveling to a single destination. Please note that oneworld Awards, which can be used for travel to multiple destinations, have distinct rules and mileage requirements and are discussed in a separate thread.

As of May 9, 2009, AA and All-Partner (All-Airline) Awards are now booked solely on a one-way basis. Two or more one-way awards are redeemed for round-trip or multicity travel.

As of Oct 1, 2010, All-Partner (All-Airline) Awards may be redeemed on all British Airways flights, including previously excluded flights between the U.S. and U.K. Note that additional British Airways YQ fuel surcharges now apply based on class-of-service and distance flown: Earning and redeeming AA miles / upgrading on BA/IB; BA fuel surcharges (Oct 1, 2010)

AA Award and All-Partner (All-Airline) Award Rules

• AA Awards are valid for travel on flights that are marketed and operated by AA (no codeshares). These awards can be booked online at AA.com.

• All-Partner (All-Airline) awards are valid for travel on AA and any of its partner airlines, and can include travel on multiple partners. These awards must be booked over the phone, and will incur a Ticketing Service Charge (waived for EXPs).

• Up to four one-way awards can be booked on a single ticket (PNR).

General Rules

Passenger has 4h/23h59m to connect (depending on domestic or international travel). If there are no scheduled flights within this timeframe, regardless of availability, the passenger must take the next scheduled flight but, may not exceed 24 hours. If the connection exceeds 24 hours, it will be considered a stopover.

If there is a non-stop flight that departs after the 4h/23h59m window and arrives at the destination earlier than a connecting flight within the 4h/23h59m window, the passenger may be booked on the non-stop flight.


Stopovers

Within North America
None.

Between North America and Europe, India, Asia, or Central / South America
One stopover is now permitted only at the North American "gateway" on awards between North America and another zone (in either direction). Note that multiple stopovers are permitted on oneworld awards, which have separate rules and mileage redemption rates.

I've compiled a list of award booking classes for each carrier in the AAdvantage program.

You may find this information useful when you're on the phone with an AA rep, or perhaps when checking availability via Galileo, if you can see the relevant inventory.

Please also note that errors and omissions are excepted.

General Routing Rules

The OP of this thread noted that there are some imbedded tables at the end that are impossible to decipher.

Routing

General Rules

Passenger has 4h/23h59m to connect (depending on domestic or international travel). If there are no scheduled flights within this timeframe, regardless of availability, the passenger must take the next scheduled flight but, may not exceed 24 hours. If the connection exceeds 24 hours, it will be considered a stopover.

If there is a non-stop flight that departs after the 4h/23h59m window and arrives at the destination earlier than a connecting flight within the 4h/23h59m window, the passenger may be booked on the non-stop flight. It is not necessary to check every flight/carrier to ensure passenger is booked on next scheduled flight.

When selling seats for through flights and the desired inventory is not available, you cannot opt to sell the flight point-to-point. If sold point-to-point, the error response MULTIPLE SEGMENTS FOR SAME FLIGHT - SELL AS ONE SEGMENT will be received, indicating this booking is not allowed. Overriding the error check by ending the PNR twice is not acceptable.
