Canít retrieve mobile boarding pass?

I can't retrieve a mobile boarding pass for a domestic flight tomorrow. The app is giving me a message to "Get passes at the airport". Anyone else having this issue? Strangely, I can print one from the website.

That happens time to time me when I'm upgraded. I can download one from aa.com but I can't pull up one up on mobile. I find by flight time magically the app provides a BP. Worst come to worst the OP could use the printed BP but we know that's so totally 2000.

They might think your're a Luddite. Just whip out your flip phone and try to look stylish.

This has also been my experience when I can not obtain mobile BPs across multiple airlines.

Incorrect, IME. The app (or website) reports that you HAVE been checked-in, but must obtain BP at the AP. (Although that was in INTL return to the U.S. for me - not domestic.)

When youíre able to print the boarding pass at home? Usually I canít get a boarding pass at all before arriving at the airport with SSSS.

This happened to parents and me when we were given free TSA Pre-Check before and international trip (this before I had Global Entry and Pre-Check).

I always print one from the kiosk to have on had which clearly shows my seat assignment. Just in case someone tries to pull some shenanigans along the way.

It happened to me. I just showed the GA my BP on my phone. Turns out the other pax gave the GA a BP for another flight and it beeped dupe seat.

With the new crackdown on carry on baggage...paper and mobile passes count towards your carry on allowance....need to gate check them both along with your newspaper, bottled water, and all common sense
