AA App for the Apple iPhone / iOS - Questions, Issues

The iPhone American Airlines app now (Sep 2014) requires iOS 8.0 to run properly. If you have an earlier iPhone you do not wish to update from iOS 7 or previous versions due to battery usage and reported slowness, the AA app now requires updating to iOS 8 to communicate and exchange data with AA.

The previous iPhone American Airlines App works with iOS 7.0 and was originally released September 2013; the newest version is 3.4.1 (for fixes for iPad crashes). Further information can be found in the iTunes store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/amer...382698565?mt=8

cubuffaloes2004 states:

"What's New in Version 3.3.0
- Now retrieve your mobile boarding pass for AA flights (for eligible cities) on itineraries with codeshare flights
- Ability to change your seat on US Airways flights
- Upon check in, see status of systemwide and 500-mile upgrade requests
- Mobile boarding pass redesign/enhancements
- Smarter search capabilities on Flight Status and Schedules
- Various other bug fixes"


Also displays the incoming flight.

Did AA "enhance" the mobile app and take away baggage carousel info?

Just noticed that the app doesnt show the baggage claim belt # anymore. It wasnt always accurate, but it was useful most of the time.

I never seem to have this feature update before I figure out what belt it is on anyways.

Interesting- I noticed it in the changing header now as well (although it said --).

it used to be in the white box. Where it says gate 8, Terminal 8, there used to be a 3rd box for Baggage Claim #

I'm on Android, so not sure if this is the right thread, but they just updated the app to have a notification menu in the top right corner.

Since then I have received zero notifications. Upgrade emails and stuff that recently started also stopped.

Anyone else?

Don't like it.

Have you (we) liked anything new since Dougie took over? This is just another... they should have just used a USAir logo.

Not sure if anyone else has seen this - but was proactively offered to get on some sort of a bidding system for taking a VDB:

What were the T&C? Do you get to know what flight they are rebooking you onto or are you committed by selecting an offer value? Big difference between confirmed seat on a flight an hour later or rolling standby with nothing confirmable for over 24 hours.

And AA paper vouchers suck. I frequently VDB on US but not on AA with the step backwards to paper coupons. Donít care that Iím at the airport most weeks. AA deciding to inconvenience VDB is a non-starter.

Good news, AA is finally doing push notifications to alert passengers when their flight has begun boarding.
