A suggestion when flying AA and parking in a terminal garage....

Check in, print BP at home, drive thru terminal lower level, pulling up at one of the AA "cubside" baggage check stands, hopefully with a short or no line, bail out (quickly, watching for the traffic gendarmes), check bag, then make the circle to enter the parking garage and park, leaving only your carryons to muscle into the terminal. Doesn't work every time, but worth a try at off-peak departure hours.

Works better when I have spouse along so that one of us stands at car door while the other checks bags, then we switch.

Doesn't solve the return to a different terminal, however....(always unless using an off airport parking lot).
