  • Most things good but service reduction on flights truly a sad way to skimp on service to save money. Mar 21, 2021

    By slpoulos
    The app is almost always very efficient.... but recently, my seat assignment that I chose in a premium economy as a Platinum Pro an aisle seat 9c when I made the reservation... but I went to check later that week I saw that my seat assignment was changed to a window seat which is not what I chose. Also... when I am in Premium Economy seats or pay for First... it is pathetic that you are not serving beverage service .... and can’t serve a snack or light meal as was our rationale for buying First in the past ... the service and the way we are treated in first.... so obvious that the management is using Covid as an excuse not to give the exceptional service that American has been known for.... other carriers are treating their loyal customers much better... makes you think about your Loyalty to American going forward. Just wanted to let you know how so many of your customers are venting and expressing their disgust with the level of service commensurate with Southwest or Spirit.

    one of the better airline apps...tracks bag, neat layout, shows list of standby and business class, notifications when boarding. sometimes the app kicks me out and I have to re-enter my pero because fingerprint won't work. Overall a good app as a AAdvantage member.

    I read through the reviews and took issue with most of them. People qualify themselves as frequent fliers and then mention that this app is dysfunctional...as an Executive Platinum member (i.e.- I fly), I find this app highly capable. I find it useful in every way that I need it to be. I’m able to book revenue and award tickets, I’m able to select my seats, and when my upgrade processes I’m able to recheck my seat in the new cabin. I’m able to check-in and I find the app to be very useful in receiving flight updates. My company uses concur, and the moment my flight is reserved in concur it shows up in the app. I’m able to understand if my flight may be impacted based on the app-provided “inbound” flight, and I’m able to live-track my baggage in the event that I check bags. I’m not sure what people expect from an app, but in reading the reviews it seems that people are hoping that the app somehow will solve all of their travel nightmares, but I’m afraid those are classic weather, mechanical, and customer service issues.
  • Made whole trip convenient! Jul 17, 2019

    By ViridianPhoton
    This app really made my travel experience easy not just in terms of getting flight and boarding info, but also navigating unfamiliar airports quickly. I didn’t need to enter any info to have my reservation front and center, and it filtered out legs of my trip that I completed (though they’re still accessible) The app has a map of each airports on the reservation, with their terminals/gates, and marks where the gate is in the map. You can also get directions if you want to. I had very short layovers and needed to get quickly to my next gate, and this app made figuring out where and how I needed to get there effortless. In addition it shows nearby airport restaurants and other things by name on the map. Also, when browsing restaurants, it pre-filters them based on where you’re at. It even has their menus, which I appreciated b/c I eat GF and wanted to know ahead of time if it would be a waste of time to eat somewhere. The map loaded fast too, and didn’t chug when I scrolled/zoomed. The confirmation reminders helped me not forget to do it, and the boarding passes added to passbook in the proper order (small detail but other apps have messed this up or don’t add all boarding passes for a multi-leg trip). Bottom line - I always felt the most relevant info to me at the time was present, was easy to find, and never slowed me down. Best airline app experience I’ve had. Don’t change anything!

  • Reliable information, very professional. No stress! Jan 31, 2018

    By Chicago Dad151235
    Unlike some others, I do find this app intuitive. Love being able to see inbound flight info, and updates for flight information is very timely. I feel like I have an inside track because in many cases, I have learned about gate changes and other info before formal announcements. Seat change requests are accurate, and I’ve never been let down. When traveling, we rely on having accurate information and having control, and this app helps me keep the stress level down because I never have to guess. Yes, sometimes the in-flight entertainment is glitchy, but I’m on a plane sharing a small network with many users so I’ve stuck to using data, only for work, and viewing downloaded movies or listening to downloaded music. There are too many other entertainment options out there these days for me to hold this against the app when that is not it’s main purpose.
  • saved me so much time Feb 8, 2021

    By luciano_menzo
    I had a flight from Philadelphia to Orange County with a layover in Dallas. Due to weather in Dallas, I experienced several delays and cancellations, so my 7 hour travel day turned into a 22 hour travel day. Every time there was a complication, this app notified me and easily gave me an option to change my flight. I didn’t have to go through the hassle of going online and booking it from the website; everything was right on the app. I learned about flight cancellations, gate changes, and general updates on the app wayyyy before the airport gate boarders updated us in person. When I landed in Dallas for the first time, I was immediately notified of missing my layover flight and was able to change to another flight before I even finished exiting the plane I was currently on. If I didn’t have this app, I probably would’ve lost my mind/missed even more flights. Definitely a necessity if you’re flying American in case of events like this.

    I didn’t realize how much I love the American Airlines app until traveling on a couple different airlines recently and I really came to appreciate it. I get notified immediately through push notifications when there are any delays, flight changes, etc. and it also updates all the information on the boarding pass in my Apple wallet. I expected this from another airline and didn’t receive it - got all the way to that gate and then customer service before finding out a flight was cancelled, which never would’ve happened on American! Everything, including same day flight changes is a breeze to do in the app, and I also have been able to reschedule flights easily: I got notified that my flight delay would cause me to miss my connection and was offered other flight times that I could book immediately. Huge fan of the app and of American!!

    I just opened my app in order to check in for my flight tomorrow from BOS to ORD. Upon refresh, I received a notice that they were looking for volunteers to take a different flight and wanted to know the minimum I would accept to switch. It said my choice had been noted and if needed I would be called to the desk tomorrow! Wow! That’s using technology to prevent fires instead of always fighting them. There is bad weather across the country and they are really working to prevent as much pain as possible at the airport tomorrow. I have one suggesting and this app will be simply the best in breed. For upgrades, please put the number of seats available along with the number of people checked in. That way you have a bit more of an idea if an upgrade is even possible. Currently, you can see your name of the list but not how many seats are available to begin with. Delta does this and I love it!

    Normally I always get a ticket when I travel. Today I decided to only use the app and missed my flight waiting at the wrong gate. Please figure out a way to update the flight status every hour. Since, I waited at the wrong terminal for 1 hour prior to my flight.
  • Horrible experience with VeriFLY Apr 6, 2021

    By eubanks6703
    Flight 805 from Cancun to phl... April 5 238pm VeriFLY downloaded before the trip. Our trip went as planned and we had a wonderful time. We were not able to check into our flight or make any changes using the app the night before. Our transportation got us to the airport as scheduled around 12:15. This would leave plenty of time to get settled and arrive to our gate. When we arrived at the airport we still could not check in at the kiosk there were 2 lines one for VeriFLY and one If you did not. I explained that I had VeriFLY but it was loading and my husband also had it and I was his companion. We were sent into the main assistance line and we did not reach the counter until 1:45 boarding started at 1:53. The rest of our party was at the gate and relaxed. We were so tired that we even asked if there was a voucher or option to stay and change our flight to the next day. After all of that standing in line They didn’t even ask for the paper of the negative covid test. We were extremely frustrated and disappointed in this process. Other airlines had the option to quickly scan the covid results and keep things moving. We arrived at our gate just before boarding was closing and thankfully friends were able to grab us something to eat. Our luggage did arrive however the wheel was broken off of my suitcase. This was truly a horrible experience.

    Very poor CS on phone, chat and especially at the JFK airport. Long wait and staffs are unprofessional and not knowledgeable. I asked about unaccompanied minor service and got all different answers regarding age and fee. Not able to make an reservation via online or on phone. My children's flight was delayed and I was notified only 3 hours before. I went to airport 90 minutes before the flight to make reservation, but was told I was late to check in. Supervisor and mgr very rude. Would give 0

    Unreliable. Checked in using the app. Was able to see my boarding pass until about an hour before my flight. Thankfully I was already through security. Was prompted to check in again but couldn't and had to get a printed pass...
  • Worst flight experience ever Jul 18, 2021

    By samuel sicairos
    Never flying AA again. I kept hearing all these horror stories and figured it wouldn’t happen to us. What started off nice ended up ruining our day. We flew from Phoenix to Orlando with a connecting flight from Charlotte. The night before I checked in with the app, cool! But then we get to Charlotte and it never gave me the option to check in so I figured I didn’t need to. The app was showing us the seats I specifically picked out when I bought the tickets. Yet when we arrive to board they say we don’t have assigned seats (even though the app and our paper tickets had seats). Traveling with an 8year girl and autistic son, being split was not an option. After much frustration, the agent finally gave us two and two seats. Not how we wanted but fine, we at least got the flight to Orlando. Of course, being Orlando, we arrive and it’s raining! With lightning! Our bags would not come due to the storm. Okay, we get it. But after two hours waiting AND all other airlines delivering their people their luggage, everyone starts to get mad. WTH?!? Ruined the rest of our plans for the day. And then we’re looking out the windows and no rain? Wish I could share the pictures I took of no rain and clouds clearing. Never again American.

    Forces you to use verifly but not way to link that the the flight so you can check in before airport. Also American Airlines changed our flight time so at 1am I had to try and find a new flight so I would not lose a day of our honeymoon. Never flying American again, worst air service ever.

    By Jeremy Johns
    A real pain to use for international travel. VeriFly and The American Airlines app do not communicate, so most of the time you can't even check in until you get the airport. The app also doesn't save seat selections nor will it let you pick seats until you check in.
  • Amazing how bad this app still is Dec 13, 2019

    By Rudder61
    I use the app every week as i travel that much. Its amazing to me that after being at this for so many years, AA STILL doesn't understand what travelers need. there are many annoying things that i wish they would solve already. 1). I live in PR, the area to store my CC information does not accept PR as a state or territory for my address. PR has been part of the US for 100 years. I’ve reported it several times but they either ignore it or cant figure it out 2- the app used to have multi-city functionality, it was taken away, so, we are going backwards? 3- i often get an “error 504” when paying for tickets, its annoying as it forces one to have to start again 4- if one is traveling outside the US, it defaults to the local language, the Language chOice option is not permanent, it should allow language preference regardless if where you are. 5- luggage tags should be added to the electronic boarding pass. 6- there should be a “order of presence for CCs, meaning which ones to use first, second, etc. The list of suggestions can go on and go, but first, fix the problems.

    App is ok. Updates are not coming in as fast; google search your flight number to get more up-to-date info with accurate details. Overall, the app is working better than the airlines.

  • Pretty good....most of the time Oct 2, 2020

    By If hes Toph I am Sli
    App runs pretty well. My biggest frustration is that sometimes I have to go to the full web site for seat selection. This is normally happening after my travel agency issues my ticket and I think there is some kind of lag before I am allowed to make changes in the app. I am normally insulted by the offers to upgrade to first class because they are not reasonable. It’s almost like a reminder that I am not wealthy and I am sure most people feel this way. Once it was like $1,500 for one way! I do occasionally put in for an upgrade. It would be nice if the app told you when first class was checked-in full so you would not have to wait until the last minute to grab a drink from somewhere (especially since they are not serving drinks in coach). Maybe a stoplight system like they use for Jetnet that shows when you have no chance.

    For some reason it isn't as functional as it once was. Doesn't automatically tell me how long until my flight boards anymore and now tracking your bags is ridiculously complicated. It used to be right there, now I have to look for it and it redirects me to the website where I have to put in my FF number and password again. What's the point of the app then?!
  • First Class Amenities = 0 Jan 8, 2021

    By MickiThompson
    Don’t waste your money on First Class tickets through American Airlines. You get no amenities for your money. The person who took our bags did not put First Class stickers on our luggage. Then the Flight Attendant refused to provide us with any service on our flight back from Key West today citing that the reason is because people stormed the Capital yesterday. We asked what that had to do with our flight, and she answered that the union decided no to provide services due to the unrest. Then she walked to the back of the plane and stayed there the entire flight!! RIDICULOUS! We had nothing to do with what happed in DC! We were in Key West on vacation. What those people did had nothing to do with us. This is infuriating. We are Advantage members and have never flown with another airline. EVER! But we will be booking with another airline for our future flights, international and domestic. Thanks for giving us nothing for our money.

    Normally I always get a ticket when I travel. Today I decided to only use the app and missed my flight waiting at the wrong gate. Please figure out a way to update the flight status every hour. Since, I waited at the wrong terminal for 1 hour prior to my flight.

    A real pain to use for international travel. VeriFly and The American Airlines app do not communicate, so most of the time you can't even check in until you get the airport. The app also doesn't save seat selections nor will it let you pick seats until you check in.
  • Amazing how bad this app still is Dec 13, 2019

    By Rudder61
    I use the app every week as i travel that much. Its amazing to me that after being at this for so many years, AA STILL doesn't understand what travelers need. there are many annoying things that i wish they would solve already. 1). I live in PR, the area to store my CC information does not accept PR as a state or territory for my address. PR has been part of the US for 100 years. I’ve reported it several times but they either ignore it or cant figure it out 2- the app used to have multi-city functionality, it was taken away, so, we are going backwards? 3- i often get an “error 504” when paying for tickets, its annoying as it forces one to have to start again 4- if one is traveling outside the US, it defaults to the local language, the Language chOice option is not permanent, it should allow language preference regardless if where you are. 5- luggage tags should be added to the electronic boarding pass. 6- there should be a “order of presence for CCs, meaning which ones to use first, second, etc. The list of suggestions can go on and go, but first, fix the problems.

    App is ok. Updates are not coming in as fast; google search your flight number to get more up-to-date info with accurate details. Overall, the app is working better than the airlines.
  • Inflight entertainment is terrible Jul 12, 2021

    By Shrine17
    The aadvantage portion of the app works fine. However, the inflight entertainment is terrible. Last week I was on a flight and used the app to launch the inflight movies. While this is a little hit and miss (whether it works or not), this time it worked. On my return flight, it decided that I needed to upgrade and it would not let me launch the app without upgrading. Keep in mind that I am on the plane when it notifies me of this. You would think that it would let you upgrade while on the aa inflight wireless but no such luck. So I tether to my phone while we are taxiing to attempt to upgrade to the latest version. I successfully upgrade and launch the inflight movie selection only to be given an error 404 on my browser. I tried several things including powering down my iPad to get it to work but it never did. This is just one example of many where the inflight entertainment system did not work. I am in support of using personal devices for inflight movies but only if the system works consistently. Please fix this terrible and bug prone system.
  • Horrible experience with VeriFLY Apr 6, 2021

    By eubanks6703
    Flight 805 from Cancun to phl... April 5 238pm VeriFLY downloaded before the trip. Our trip went as planned and we had a wonderful time. We were not able to check into our flight or make any changes using the app the night before. Our transportation got us to the airport as scheduled around 12:15. This would leave plenty of time to get settled and arrive to our gate. When we arrived at the airport we still could not check in at the kiosk there were 2 lines one for VeriFLY and one If you did not. I explained that I had VeriFLY but it was loading and my husband also had it and I was his companion. We were sent into the main assistance line and we did not reach the counter until 1:45 boarding started at 1:53. The rest of our party was at the gate and relaxed. We were so tired that we even asked if there was a voucher or option to stay and change our flight to the next day. After all of that standing in line They didn’t even ask for the paper of the negative covid test. We were extremely frustrated and disappointed in this process. Other airlines had the option to quickly scan the covid results and keep things moving. We arrived at our gate just before boarding was closing and thankfully friends were able to grab us something to eat. Our luggage did arrive however the wheel was broken off of my suitcase. This was truly a horrible experience.

    Very poor CS on phone, chat and especially at the JFK airport. Long wait and staffs are unprofessional and not knowledgeable. I asked about unaccompanied minor service and got all different answers regarding age and fee. Not able to make an reservation via online or on phone. My children's flight was delayed and I was notified only 3 hours before. I went to airport 90 minutes before the flight to make reservation, but was told I was late to check in. Supervisor and mgr very rude. Would give 0

    Unreliable. Checked in using the app. Was able to see my boarding pass until about an hour before my flight. Thankfully I was already through security. Was prompted to check in again but couldn't and had to get a printed pass...
  • Worst flight experience ever Jul 18, 2021

    By samuel sicairos
    Never flying AA again. I kept hearing all these horror stories and figured it wouldn’t happen to us. What started off nice ended up ruining our day. We flew from Phoenix to Orlando with a connecting flight from Charlotte. The night before I checked in with the app, cool! But then we get to Charlotte and it never gave me the option to check in so I figured I didn’t need to. The app was showing us the seats I specifically picked out when I bought the tickets. Yet when we arrive to board they say we don’t have assigned seats (even though the app and our paper tickets had seats). Traveling with an 8year girl and autistic son, being split was not an option. After much frustration, the agent finally gave us two and two seats. Not how we wanted but fine, we at least got the flight to Orlando. Of course, being Orlando, we arrive and it’s raining! With lightning! Our bags would not come due to the storm. Okay, we get it. But after two hours waiting AND all other airlines delivering their people their luggage, everyone starts to get mad. WTH?!? Ruined the rest of our plans for the day. And then we’re looking out the windows and no rain? Wish I could share the pictures I took of no rain and clouds clearing. Never again American.

    Forces you to use verifly but not way to link that the the flight so you can check in before airport. Also American Airlines changed our flight time so at 1am I had to try and find a new flight so I would not lose a day of our honeymoon. Never flying American again, worst air service ever.

    Can't login despite having all the correct information and being able to login online. I know it sounds like user error but I use a password manager and it logs me in just fine on the website.
  • Complete Lack of Support Jul 20, 2021

    By Phileas Fogg's 'stache
    As AAdvantage member, I attempted to use this app. On opening the app for the first time I was unable to log in using my credentials. I verified that I was using the proper member id and password multiple times, but was repeatedly told the information was incorrect. To add insult to injury, there is literally no way to get help on this issue via the app or online at the American Airlines web site. Trying to follow the Kafkaesque circle of links to email customer service (which, good news, we can help you through a faq! A faq that has nothing to with anything other than answering questions like when should I arrive at the airport!), to phone numbers that try to get you to wait until three days before your flight out of respect for those who are in a hurry, to the circular reference vortex of go to the website, which tells you to call customer service, which tells you to download and use the app, which sends you back to the website. Fun. No app is worth this level of malign witlessness. The people responsible for this atrocity should be ashamed, but given the absolute depravity of this worthless, steaming pile, it has to be deliberate. So gold star for you.

    The update seems to have caused more issues. I have not been able to login for days now. With a trip coming up very soon this is super stressful.
  • Least Useful Airline App. And Airline. Feb 4, 2019

    By RedDirtNerd
    Not living in a city that is a major hub for one airline, I frequently switch between American, United, and Delta. After booking with my company’s travel department my flights on United and Delta automatically show up in their respective Apps, along with boarding passes showing my Pre-Check status. To get a boarding pass in the American App, you will have to enter your confirmation number in the app to view your reservation, and it won’t show Pre-Check status. My Pre-Check number is in my profile and shows in the app, but according to American, because we don’t book directly with American they are unable give me boarding pass in app showing that I’m Pre-Check. This requires a trip to the Kiosk where I have to check in and manually enter my Pre-Check number and get a printed boarding pass. Push notifications are so far behind you won’t get a notice your flight is boarding until you’ve already (hopefully) landed at your destination. The one bright side is easy access to terminal maps in the app. But this app and this airline are in desperate need of an update in user friendliness.

    Won't let me log in. Keeps giving me an error. Tried the same credentials on the website and it works just fine.
