American Airlines App Comments & Reviews

American Airlines Positive Reviews

Very helpful!!I downloaded this app for my most recent trip to California and I’m so glad I did (I don’t know how I would have survived without it)! The app was great at getting me checked in/boarded, keeping me updated on my flight status and luggage status*, as well as keeping me informed on gate changes (which gave me so much peace of mind for someone who has never flown solo before and hasn’t had much experience with airports) *The one suggestion I do have for the app would be to only send notifications about baggage claim to those people who actually need to pick up their bags. Going to California this didn’t happen to me but coming back, I had a moment of sheer terror because I got a notification saying that I needed to pick up my bag for my connecting flight which would have made me late for the next one. After asking the person at the gate if this was true they looked at my baggage claim tag and told me that my luggage would be transferred and that sometimes everybody on a particular flight get that notification even if it doesn’t apply to them. Eventually, the app updated my bag status to being loaded on the plane as I was boarding but I definitely panicked for a good 10-15 minutes. Other than that one thing, I had nothing but a positive experience using the app.Version: 2021.14.1

Most things good but service reduction on flights truly a sad way to skimp on service to save money.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..Version: 2021.03

Terrible appTerrible app, this isn’t very functional compared to the United app. I dropped United last year and I am a frequent flyer and now Platnium pro. The WiFi functionality in the air to stream just doesn’t work well in the app. How you have to switch back and forth multiple times going from ur WiFi settings to the app in order to play a video. U should simply be on the WiFi and then be able to select entertainment and be able to select the video all in the app. The upgrade list isn’t well done and isn’t able to be seen in real time except right before boarding. Interactive maps are terrible. Push notifications for boarding, or modifying push notifications to 15 min before boarding so you can leave the Admirals club and make it to your gate on time. Also it is a pain when ur boarding pass expires when in the air, a big problem when ur flight is delayed. I get better notifications from Kayak about my American Airlines delays and baggage claim then I get out of the American app. It is truly a disappointing app..Version: 5.10.6

The app is greatI 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..Version: 5.11.4

Saved me so much timeI 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..Version: 2020.20.1

Made whole trip convenient!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!.Version: 5.14.0

Reliable information, very professional. No stress!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..Version: 5.5.0

I love this app! By far the best airline app!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!!.Version: 5.12.3

Great App, Continuous DevelopmentI 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!.Version: 5.13.4

What a difference a few days make! MCO needs to learn from TYSI had a horrible experience at the admirals club at MCO this past Tuesday 12/14. Carol and a male who were working the check in desk displayed the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Carol was very rude and told me several times she has worked for AA for 21 years, and she knows about the admiral’s club than me. To be honest with you, since it’s her job, I would hope she knows more than me. Later I found out that I could not bring my 18 year old dependent. I found that information on AA’s site. Not sure why Carol could not simply relay that information instead of humiliating me in front of my family and other passengers and blocked club access. This experience, and being told I could not visit the admirals club almost pushed me to close my credit card and find another air carrier. This morning 12/18 at TYS, Cynthia? was so friendly and helpful as we were checking in for our flight to PHL. She displayed the type of service I am used to from AA. For me, this friendly agent changed my mind with leaving AA. I know the way I was treated at MCO admirals club will not be properly handled which is disappointing. I do hope that the TYS agent will be recognized for going above and beyond with her fantastic customer service. Ryan Flohra 93M8UF4.Version: 2021.20.1

Exceptional ServiceYou need to use Cory for training. There is a term for exceptional customer service and it is called service excellence. Service excellence is when an employee not only does their job well but anticipates and works to meet the customer’s need or wants without the customer saying anything. My family of six ended up not sitting together on flight 980 from DFW to ATL and Cory went above and beyond to make sure our kids were happy and even asked several other passengers if they wouldn’t mind moving seats. Again, we did not ask him to do any of this. It wasn’t only our family who were treated with such great service, he was consistent in his quality of character throughout the flight. Service excellence like he exemplified can be taught and Corey is a natural at it..Version: 2022.01

Pretty good....most of the timeApp 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..Version: 2020.15.2

First Class Amenities = 0Don’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..Version: 2020.20.1

Perfect!This app is my life saver! it makes things so so easy!! i love flying with American Airlines, if you do then definitely get this app. i fly every month and being able to have everything on my phone is so helpful. you can have multiple flights on the app to have information of. you don't need wifi to get on the app like the website!! incase something happens to your boarding pass its all on your phone!! i am maybe a little too enthusiastic about this app but i really love it. if you are flying you NEED this app. it also give you maps of what airports you will be at so you know where to go. and you can change your seat any time until boarding pretty much. i will always choose to fly with AA they have always been good to me and i have amazing flights!!.Version: 2020.19

Great app on day of travelNot sure what the poor reviews are about... certainly more about service issues than the app itself. As a weekly AA flyer, I find the app to be very helpful and intuitive. I don’t need to dig all over like the United app. Everything is on the home screen and it’s dynamic to what I most need at that time. Favorite features are the ability to order food from restaurants at DFW and a few other airports - need more! - and see the terminal maps to plan out a quick connect. Rebooking is great when it works, many times though the rebook option doesn’t show up in app timely for me. I get the text message about a cancellation or delay and race to the app and the rebooking shows sometimes but not others. Otherwise very positive experiences with the app!.Version: 5.14.4

Hmmm..I don’t understand so many of these reviews complaining about so many things that I’ve 100% been able to do on this app. I can load all the boarding passes for connections on my trips (you do have to add each individual one to your wallet, but that’s not hard). The app is fairly up to date with my flight info usually. I can check in to my flights through it. I never have to look up my trips with record locators (I do always book my flights through the app though, so maybe that’s why). I love that it tracks my checked luggage, fairly accurately too. I can’t speak to the in flight entertainment, I never bother to use it. If the plane doesn’t have in seat screens, I just use my Kindle or Surface Pro to watch downloaded Netflix or Prime Video stuff. I travel frequently, almost always on AA, and it has made traveling easier for me..Version: 5.9.1

Reliable app, bad video integrationSeems like most people don't know how to review an app and instead review customer service issues 😄. Here's an actual app review. Been using consistently for over a year now. Used for 70+ check-ins, TSA points, and boarding. App is reliable, updates changes in flight information quickly, sometimes even before the pilot has informed passengers. A recent update broke the "clear expired passes" feature which was useful as I am a frequent flyer that uses iOS's wallet feature a lot. Using the app for in-flight entertainment is quite atrocious. UI loops that bring you back to square one and very infrequent experiences without glitches. Most of the time it just plain doesn't work. Maybe it's the plane's servers, but c'mon...WestJet got it right, why can't American!? The most recent update killed compatibility with iOS 9. Yeah, I should update, I get it. But really, how hard is legacy support?.Version: 5.2.2

Customer complaintsI just wanted to make a note about some of the complaints about aadvantage or American Airlines I do not work for either aadvantage or American airline’s . This review is based of a logical approach and a logical opinion We as the customer have developed a “ entitled “ attitude towards the airline’s industry and as such towards society . This rule of “ the customer is always correct “ mentality is giving rise to ignorance . Just because an airline cancels a flight or delays a flight does not give you the right to berate an airline and it’s staff. We as a society are not royalty. Yet you as the passenger make yourselves out to be . Please stop Things happen . I get it . It’s an inconvenience . Hey my plans have been ruined but at the end of the day it does not give you the right to attack an airline and it’s staff just because you have been inconvenienced . We all have . Move on be polite and live to see another day . Be grateful that the airline’s are there in the first place . Just because you have had a negative experience from American Airlines immediately you state “ oh I’m Never flying them again “. Put your big boy pants on and be respectful Thank You.Version: 2021.20.2

We are American!It’s always great with American airlines because they listen. I have always taken the time to communicate with American Airlines and noticed that it does work overtime. I appreciate the constant upgrades that American brings to make it better and better each time. It’s a parent did American wants to be number one and I realize they’re not perfect, they are working hard to make it the best American Airlines possible. I appreciate this so good and hopefully some integrated parts will make this a better experience. Knowing how much time it takes to develop and tweak apps and sites, I appreciate the time invested to continually give us a great experience as we fly across this country with American Airlines. Thank you once again for serving us with excellence..Version: 5.9.0

App is Beautiful But Needs Multi-City BookingLet me just say that this app is gorgeous, easy to use and man it just adhere’s to the idea of “knowing what the user wants to do before the user knows what they want to do”. The interface is simple and easy to use. Booking flights is so so easy. Now, with all of this being said, this app cannot he used for booking multi-city trips. I do wish that they would at the minimum, put a message telling the user to go online to the website in the event that a multi-city trip is desired, besides that, I have never had a single problem with the app. It has only crashed on me once in the 2+ years that I have used it, which JUST PHENOMENAL! If there is to be a hall of fame for travel apps, American Airline’s App should be in it!.Version: 2020.01

My KTN Was MIAI loaded my KTN last week to my account when I received it however when I got to the airport it wasn’t printed on my boarding pass or showing in my app. I went into my account and there it was as I entered it. I contacted AA through the app, they asked me what my KTN was, I gave it to them, they said it was already in my account so try again. They said to print my new boarding pass but I was already at my flight gate. I informed them of my frustration of going through general check in and they told me to speak to someone at the counter. I checked my app and my boarding pass in the app and nothing was changed. I went to the counter at the gate and the worker said that has to be handled at the ticketing counter. Maybe it will be fixed for my next flight..Version: 2021.18

Very nice! (Minor check-in issue...)It’s clean and does what it needs to. Departure delays show up immediately, with notifications. When checking in for a 2 leg flight connecting in Miami, as a Canadian, I had to put in where I was staying in Miami. Oops. I put the MIA airport address, and everything worked fine after that..Version: 5.11.6

ThanksThe times are hard but sometimes is absolutely necessary to travel do to important reasons thanks for making this posible had a great experience..Version: 2021.17

Works great with apple watchThis app has always been useful to me. Got an apple watch mid May and used easily within a week on a flight connecting through DFW. Fantastic to have boarding gate info etc on my wrist instead of fumbling with my bags, iPhone 6+ etc while riding escalators, skylink/changing terminals, going through security etc..Version: 4.0.1

US residents only?Like the app in general, does the job except for seat reservation n upgrades. Cannot enter a Canadian address (or any other than US). Dan.Version: 5.8.1

It’s okay I guessThe app isn’t abysmal, but the airline is, while I have avoided using most of the app’s functions because I enjoy my sanity, I suppose it is kinda helpful to know a few minutes early when my flight is going to be delayed for 4 hours, the terminals get switched thrice, the flight gets delayed for another 6 hours, and then the flight gets cancelled. Although considering it’s American Airlines that’s basically a guarantee to begin with. This is why I fly Air Canada.Version: 5.7.3

Above averageSurprised to see such negative feedback. I use 4 different airline apps and this is above average..Version: 5.6.0

So far so goodJust downloaded the app for flight information, I usually don't fly American, but am connecting through them today. Fantastic app, head and shoulders better than Air Canada's, easy to navigate, very attractive and smooth interface and the wealth of information it provides is excellent. Also missed my connection due to a delay in Winnipeg and the AA staff were a breeze to deal with. A1!.Version: 4.10.0

Can't check-inDoesn't validate the password??.Version: 5.1.0

UsefulI have never used it for booking travel (I like Expedia) but when I'm travelling, this app is indispensable. Puts everything I want to know at my fingertips..Version: 4.10.1

Good app needs updateDoesn't support Canadian credit cards..Version: 4.9.0

Top of the lineBest app for airlines.Version: 4.0.1

This App just got betterThe addition of incoming flight information is genius. This is how you take an App from GREAT to AWESOME!! Good job AA!.Version: 3.6.0
