Price discrepancy: APP vs AA.com



Looking to buy a 1 way, SAV - MIA for tomorrow, June 13. The AA APP... shows the direct flights at $740.00. HOWEVER on AA.com the same flights are $274.00!!!!

Has anyone else experienced this type of price discrepancy? Screenshots attached.

You probably ticked the “show flexible only” box, thus it’s only showing you (expensive) flexible flights.

You have the "show flexible only" box clicked on the app...

I found an instance recently where I could find better award flight options via the app as compared to the website. I chalked it up to AA IT and their well known suck factor.

Well, as a scientist, I believe in independent verification:

I just put SAV-MIA in my app and got $244 for flights tomorrow one way from SAV-MIA. (basic economy, 279 for main cabin).

With the "show flexible only" clicked I got $745 for flights tomorrow one way from SAV-MIA.

The website gives me the same fares as the app.

(not sure why there is a 5$ difference between my stuff and the OP's website, perhaps fares just went up 5$ in the interim, but my app and website trials show exact same fares).

Tried clearing cash and cookies.... no change. Un-installed the APP and re-installed.... and that seems to have fixed the problem. thanks all
