    We intended on purchasing travel insurance anyway. Does anyone know if it would be helpful under the current circumstances? Should we hold off?

    Good luck. Let us know how that works out. This is a mostly employee forum, and there's nobody here that can really answer what you're asking. Try Flyertalk.com

    As I understand it (no promises...I was a flight attendant with American. I was paid to be cute, not smart.:rolleyes:) American has a free exchange offer up to/close to departure time. Double check that with AA ticketing. And, I would still purchase the insurance. I've always purchased travel insurance for International travel. The peace of mind is worth every penny.

    Forgot to mention...Be sure and check that insurance does not include any "gotcha" exclusions. For instance, does not pay if cancellation is due to public health concerns (see also, coronovirus:mad:)

    Thanks to everyone for your help. We held off on both, assuming that we could purchase insurance later, and eventually the flight was cancelled. We received a full refund from AA no questions asked.
