You're spot on.

I hope I will be able to pick my own booking class/fare basis as DL has had for years. Getting tired of booking/hold and having to call AA to change and than AA to ticket as AA.COM wants to change what I have to ??????, that it will not tell you to what, until after it is purchased.

I've learned to hope for the best and expect the worst.

Two UI features that the site used to have, now lost: 1-click access to "My Reservations", and a "Remember me" checkbox that remembered to stay checked. I'd be happy if they bring those back and don't break anything else.

By the way, the email mentions an iPad app. Sure enough, AA released an iPad HD app on Tuesday, so there are two separate apps for the IOS platform. It looks like a big version of the iPhone app.

Just getting a head start
As with any re-design, expert users won't be able to find what they're looking for in a timely manner....

Cheers.
Cool,

I recieved my email at 4:18 central time. So in order of value to AA, where do I stand?

Well, if they've finally figured out how to keep the "Remember my AAdvantage Number on this computer for my next visit" box checked, it'll all be worth it.

Since I got mine at 4:15 central time, you're clearly less important than me, despite your 3.9 mm and a' that.

Shoot. Mine came in at 4:16. I guess I am not as important as I thought I was in my own eyes.
