My email came in at 4:26 central.

Anyway, I'll be happy if the new site...
1. Doesn't make you check "Remember my AAdvantage Number" every time.
2. Has a "My Reservations" link that's easy to see and click no matter where you are.
3. Doesn't have a mixed up order of flights every time you do a search.
4. Lets you more easily see the F seat map if you're doing a search.
5. Doesn't time out so quickly.
6. Doesn't run more slowly than the current site.
7. Doesn't have a bunch of Flash or fancy graphics that take longer to load and don't render consistently in different browsers.

Long shots, but would be wonderful if it...
1. Showed upgrade standby lists (or at least your position) online.
2. Let you confirm or standby to alternate flights during OLCI.
3. Brought back flexible searches by date.
4. Let EXPs see expanded award availability online.

The (lack of) power of parallel computing, brought to you by dueling transcontinental mods. A merged thread with the entire enchilada, and an apology for any and all confusion. /JDiver

Now, will the call the new, improved website something like, er, "Eaasy Sabre"?

Its time....and long overdue - the current AA website is one of the most unfriendly websites - I will be looking forward to this new site.

Increased cosmetics on the front end, decreased functionality on the back end. This enhancement will be announced via e-mail, tweeted on twitter, posted on facebook, and the press release will be released on Monday. Shortly after that, our official AA presence will start a thread here to announce it.

A picture of S.H. 360 would have been more appropriate

I wish they'd add the ability to request SWU upgrades, but I doubt that is a focus for them. I also wouldn't mind the ability to book partner/OW awards online.

Slightly off topic, but am i the only one who noticed that AA listed "Monitor your place on the standby list" as one of the features of its iPhone app? I have the app and i don't think i can see the list. It would be nice if the new aa.com has this feature.

Yup, well it is symbolic-as it's our only option other than AS to get to SEA from the bay area! lol

I too wish we could use miles to upgrade and evip through the website. A more user friendly, 21st century way to get people to use their miles would be a godsend. I'm also hoping EXPs get extra flashier colors and a special webpage!

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.
I like the adage "He who expects nothing is never disappointed", seems appropriate.

For some reason:

My Firefox browser on my personal laptop remembers my AA sign-on to the point that if I click in the AAdvatnage # field, it puts up a dropdown that has my AAdvantage number listed (and no others), and if click my AAdvantage number from that dropdown it fills it and my password in.

OTOH, my Firefox brower on my office desktop computer requires me to retype my AAdvantage # in full every time. Then when I tab over to the password field it fills that in.

I cannot figure out why it works differently on these two computers. It's not as simple as Firefox versions, because both computers have had Firefox updated many many times, and so while they may not both be at the same version all of the time, both have "crossed" the same version at different times at the very least.

It's never worked for me on the iPhone app either.
