Wait…what? An American Airlines story

I try to plan ahead. Really, I do. But sometimes, life intrudes. Recently, I had a trip that I scheduled where I needed to come back a day early. So I called my friendly American Airlines reservation agent. “How may I assist you sir?” I told her I wanted to come back on flight AA9999 …
