Booking - Embargoed Countries


Under U.S. law, American Airlines is not allowed to facilitate travel to Cuba. American cannot participate in any itinerary that involves this country, regardless of plating carrier. American's AA 001 ticket stock may not be used for an itinerary that involves these countries. If American finds an agency is not complying with this policy, American may be forced to terminate the agency 's American Airlines appointment.

In addition, under U.S. law, American will be forced to deny a passenger use of an AA 001 ticket if the ticket involves any segments to the embargoed country. If your client presents an AA 001 ticket that was issued contrary to American's policy, your client will be advised the ticket cannot be used, but may purchase a replacement ticket for the non-embargoed segments. However, the passenger will still need to purchase a separate ticket from the applicable carrier for travel to and from the embargoed point.


The government of Yemen has restricted the sale of tickets/prepaid tickets outside Yemen for travel originating in Yemen. Tickets, including reissued tickets, originating travel in Yemen from any point in Yemen will not be honored if the ticket or prepaid ticket is issued outside Yemen.
