All transportation vouchers issued by American Airlines or American Eagle® are valid for travel on American Airlines, American Eagle, US Airways and American Airlines codeshare flights (AA*).
These vouchers are also valid for travel on oneworld® itineraries (including oneworld affiliates that must be booked as a codeshare flight marketed by a oneworld carrier) where American Airlines or American Airlines codeshare flights (AA*) is the international carrier.
Travel agents may accept American Airlines vouchers (042/043) for full or partial payment for a ticket as an "exchange" document/ticket. If the voucher is less than the ticket the additional monies are collected. If the voucher exceeds the ticket cost an MCO will be issued for the difference as a residual indicating non-refundable and for American Airlines transportation only. Valid one year from date of issue. There is no change fee/ASC associated with using a voucher.
The 13-digit voucher number is indicated in the EXCH box. A maximum of two (2) vouchers can be used per passenger. The automated endorsement verbiage will transmit to the new ticket. This endorsement verbiage should not be altered and does not need to include any other required wording associated with the Fare Basis Code (FBC).
An example of an endorsement when using a voucher as the exchange document is:
VALID ON ANY ONEWORLD CARRIER ONLY
Vouchers are non-transferable. However, the voucher owner may present and use the voucher toward the purchase of a ticket for anyone.
