    Hi Lucky,

    I currently have an AAdvantage award booked:

    QF26 HND-SYD

    QF143 SYD-AKL

    I want to change the origin to CTS so the new itinerary would be:

    JL518 CTS-HND

    QF26 HND-SYD

    QF143 SYD-AKL

    Is AAdvantage able to protect the HND-SYD and SYD-AKL segments I currently have?

    Thanks, Tom

    They should be able to add the CTS-HND flight without touching the other segments, though you'll be charged a change fee (waived for some AA elite members) plus any differences in taxes and fees
