Couldn’t be any worse if they tried

Imagine an airline set out to make the worst possible mobile app. Stripped out all the useful functions but made sure to put a credit card ad or two in, even if you happen to literally already be a cardholder. Imagine an airline that placed no priority on useful push notifications, like when boarding commences or when your bag gets scanned. Imagine an airline that still feels it’s appropriate to use some whacky web wrapper to buy tickets in 2018, or really anything account related that you tap. Imagine an airline justifying hiding upgrade lists until 4 hours prior to departure, and not automatically clearing upgrade standbys like Delta does but instead creating a tense battleground scene at the gate, every single time. Imagine an airline that thinks this kooky sliding whoohaa panel is a delightful UI, calling it “dynamic sliding travel tools” but really just a useless drawer that gets in the way.

No need to imagine, since this is exactly what American has to show, after all these years. I’ve been an AAdvantage member since 1995 and am now EP, and when I fly AA every week, it blows my mind that this app is still considered passable software by any standard. Their IT is so stoneage, so utterly archaic, it’s a miracle the entire infrastructure doesn’t buckle more often. American, your loyal flyers deserve better than this. This app is… beyond parody.

Horrible way to check your reservation

I love the way delta does things so much more! All you have to have is your name and flight number. Vs AA you have to have a record locator number. When you have a connecting flight they don’t give you that information. So you would need to do and extra step that’s not needed and call AA for the information. That information should be just presented with your boarding pass!

In recent years more and more airlines have stopped running their own reservation systems and have become clients of systems such as Amadeus and Sabre who provide hosting services. Where this occurs a single PNR (with just one record locator) may be created in the hosting system containing details of all the flights for which that hosting system is responsible. For example, a reservation for passenger traveling from London to Paris on Air France returning BA booked through AF will reside in one PNR in the Amadeus system with just one record locator because both airlines use Amadeus for reservations. If that booking is made through a travel agent using Amadeus the same single PNR/record locator will exist. However, if the reservation is made via an agency using a different system (e.g. Sabre) there will be two PNRs (one in Sabre and one in Amadeus) each with its own locator.

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.
