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
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: 2022.16
Rather impressedAirlines have taken an (often well deserved) beating as of late. Flying is a pretty miserable experience, for the most part. The fact that you have to steel yourself for whatever the length of time of the trip might be pretty much says it all. All that said, I installed the AA app several months ago with low expectations. Now I’m impressed it works really well in providing very good, right up to date information. It even maps out how to get from one gate to another when making a connection. Very nice. The one thing that would be nice to add is making it easier to edit passenger information, such as TSA PreCheck and Passport numbers.
As an aside, I have to also complement AA. I recently had to make changes—twice in two days—to a complicated overseas trip and the agent on the phone could not have been more helpful. The aggregate time to make both changes was only about 30 minutes, including waiting for a call back (rather than wait on hold). And no charges for either change. I’m fact I got a refund because the new flight was cheaper.
I had stopped using AA about 7 years ago because of serious problems with their service. I only returned (planned to be briefly) because I had some miles to use. Well, they’ve won me back..Version: 2023.16
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
Issue on flight 594On 7/2/22 my family and I were seated and ready to leave on flight 594 from Guanacaste Costa Rica “Liberia International Airport” when the pilot announced that the flight was having a fuel pump problem and that (31) passengers and corresponding luggage would have to get off the plane in order for the flight to be lighter. American Airlines was amazing in handling the situation, a total of (36) passengers were accommodated at Planet Hollywood Resort. The airline not only provided accommodations and food for all of us at a great resort, they also provided transportation to the resort and back to the airport. The Airline not only accommodated us on the next day’s flight 1238, they also provided me and my family with future vouchers to use towards future airline reservations. I have to say we were very impressed and appreciative with the way American Airlines took care of all of us. Thank you so much for everything! You have definitely earned all of our future flight traveling..Version: 2022.16
No allowance for nor providing 1st class and split up husband and wifeMy husband purchased 2 first class tickets round trip. Through several changes for the trip back, the computer split us up and we had to check in at the gate returning gate. To make matters worse, we had to pay an additional $71 to make the flight.
Then half way home the flight was canceled. When given the options, it was for only one of us. As a result we got one 1st class and one main with a 2 day delay. No offer to reimburse use
Last Jan I had a one way first class ticket from Denver to Bradley one stop. American gave me 2 stops with the longest in main and NO reimbursement for not providing me with 1st class.
I am a life member of the Advantage and have flown American almost exclusively for 40 years. This is the worst I’ve ever been treated by American Airlines. What’s worse is that I pay a premium to sit in 1st class only to be denied because others have been upgraded..Version: 2022.05
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
Rude staff, need to update planesI was sitting in an exit row in the seat was empty, our son booked his flight separately and was about ten rows behind us, I asked if he could move to the empty seat in between us and they said no because he did not pay for the upgraded exit row seat. I offered to pay for it and she said I would have to do that at the gate counter. She was very rude about it. So the seat was empty the entire flight and our son could not sit with us because that is their policy. I know Delta would have let him sit with us because i’ve seen it happen and have done it before. My second reason for the one star review is that they need a serious upgrade to their planes… They are old, sound very rickety, and the seats have no padding left. no screens to watch movie time and no free Wi-Fi, both of which Delta has. This will be my last flight with American Airlines, it’s back to Delta for me..Version: 2022.22.1
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
Check in function not workingGenerally a great app but today while checking in, it kept erasing all the address data entered and took me back to the first address line.Version: 2023.16
Was Good ExceptEverything was good except outrageous manager at gate C28 at DFW airport upon getting on our flight. Totally rude and inappropriate.Version: 2023.3
AmazingVery easy to use!.Version: 2023.13
Very good besides some bugsVery good app to manage the trip to check in and to have the boarding pass. However, it happens that there are bugs very often so you cannot check in your flight… specially with the new VeriFLY app..Version: 2023.1
Great Service & StaffEverything from the check in process to baggage tracing were excellent and efficient. Thank you!.Version: 2022.26
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
No Canada!The app will not allow Canadian seat upgrade purchases. The app is great for the flight, entertainment, etc. but if you don’t have a “zip” code, it will not let you purchase or upgrade a seat, even when you put Canada in the “country”field. On the bright side, the AA website is a little more… Canadian friendly so just jump on the site when you need to upgrade..Version: 2022.9
