Flying with American Airlines

American Airlines is an airline born from the merger of 82 small airlines in 1930. With its roots beginning in the transportation of mail in the United States under the name American Airways Company in 1926, it was acquired by Errett Lobban Cord in 1934, was renamed as "American Air Lines" and later began flying its first passengers. Currently American Airlines is one of the main airlines in the world, both in number of passengers transported and the number of routes offered.

Its current fleet has around 1,000 aircrafts, each with integrity to comfort and making passengers’ flying experience a pleasure. Thus far, the airline will also offer fully reclinable seats on all Business Class flights departing from Spain en route to the United States of America. Other updates for passengers flying on Business Class include a more contemporary interior, direct access to cabin hallway, increased privacy and additional entertainment options. Wi-Fi will also be available on all flights to Miami (MIA), Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) and Chicago (ORD), operated by the Boeing 777-200 and 787 Dreamliner.

American Airlines is a founding member of the Oneworld Airline Alliance, and coordinates fares, services, and scheduling with a number of other major airlines around the world including British Airways, Finnair, and Iberia in the transatlantic market and Cathay Pacific and Japan Airlines in the transpacific market.

Online Check-In

Check-in is available within 24 hours up to 90 minutes prior to your flight’s scheduled departing time. Online check-in is the recommended method as it is fastest and boarding passes can be printed from a home computer. A message containing a link to your boarding pass can also be emailed to most mobile devices or laptops to be shown to check-in staff. Regardless of check-in time, all baggage must be checked at least 45 minutes before domestic flights and 90 minutes before international connections.

Boarding information

Most domestic flights are boarded up to 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time. With most US airports suggesting at least an hour and a half processing time, it’s recommended to arrive at least two hours before departure. Arriving at the departure gate at least 30 minutes before the scheduled departure time is also highly recommended. Peak traffic hours at most airports are between 6:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Travelers should keep in mind that proper identification is required at all check-in desks, TSA stations and at the departure gate.

Hand Baggage Allowance

Each passenger is allowed to bring one carry-on luggage item as well as one small personal item for each flight. A traveler’s carry-on bag and personal item must be able to easily fit in the overhead bins or under the seat in front of them at the cabin crew’s discretion.

Maximum dimensions allowed for carry-on luggage are 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches (22 cm x 35 cm x 56 cm) including both the wheels and handles.

A personal item is generally defined as a purse, handbag, laptop or briefcase, book bag, or other similarly sized item. Maximum dimensions allowed for a small personal item are 9 inches x 10 inches x 17 inches (22 cm x 25 cm x 43 cm). Also, for passengers carrying mobile devices, it is important to note that due to federal regulations, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobile is not permitted on any flight. This includes recalled and replacement devices.

Checked Baggage Allowance

Baggage to check in with American Airlines may vary depending on the class and destination chosen, increasing the number of pieces of luggage, free of charge, from one to three. Other baggage fees are applied to additional check0in bags, depending on destination. Luggage may not weigh more than 50 lbs (except for flights in First Class, Business Class, or flights with destination to Brazil, where up to 70 lbs is allowed), and the sum of the three dimensions may not exceed 158 cm. Passengers are recommended to carry all delicate and valuable items with their carry-on luggage, as the TSA is required to perform a comprehensive screen on all checked baggage.
