Reliable app, bad video integration


Seems 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?

Not user friendly at all


This app is the most complicated, non intuitive design I've ever come across. Whoever developed this app did it from a technical capability standpoint, not a user standpoint. A very common error in software development. Their business analyst or product owner should have let marketing drive the development of this app, with tons more focus group feedback from customers on what they like and don't like. If you guys want to develop a much better app, contact me ;)

Trust me, you are suffering from a bad app experience, and I'd love to help. I develop software and am a certified scrum (agile methodology) master.

Also, your web app encounters errors causing it to not sync with your mobile app, thus users are not getting their total miles. Your web app is not linked well to the Citi page for credit card registration. These tech issues are common in situations with a lot of technical debt. Too many corners were cut. Invest in redoing this, please. The user experience is horrible.

Not uptodate flight & gate notifications!


This is a useful app. However, you can’t depend on it to give you the latest up to date flight info. You can get Email notices from your ticketing, but this app doesn’t reflect the latest flight time or gate information. It always seems to be at least one update behind, even after forcing a manual refresh by swiping down. And the latest update is the only one that matters, especially when there is a gate change, or worse, an earlier departure time after a previous delay notice!

This app needs to reflect the latest and most accurate flight information or it is useless.

Update: now I’m waiting to boa d another flight. There has been a gate change. All the departure displays still show the old gate, the old gate still shows it’s incorrect status, and the new gate shows a different flight altogether. How is a traveler supposed to know what is the correct gate. Of course, this app is silent...
