Both American Airlines and Delta Airlines have jumped on the "Let's increase our ticketing change fees" bandwagon as they follow in the footsteps of United and US Airways.  Delta has chosen to raise their domestic change fees (US and Canada) to $200 and American did exactly the same, raising their domestic ticket change fees to $200 as well.
