    booked two business class tickets at $482 each (fare was $20 each)!! May 9 – DCA-DFW-PEK, May 16 PEK-ORD-DCA. Looks like AA is only starting nonstop flights from DFW to PEK starting May 7. Website says they’ll be using the new retrofitted 777-200s for these flights but my seat map shows the old 2-3-2 configuration in business class…wonder if that’ll change in the days leading up the the flight! I hope it does!

    Yes, the same happened to me. They are very rude to reply, The only way is to I report to the Customer relations, which I just did. Well.
