Checking in for your flight can be a hassle, especially if you’re running late or have a lot of bags to check. Luckily, American Airlines has made the process much easier with their mobile app. In this tutorial, we will guide you through how to check-in on the AA mobile app.

Step 1: Download the App

The first thing you need to do is download the American Airlines mobile app from your app store. It’s free and available for both iOS and Android devices.

Step 2: Log in to Your Account

Once you’ve downloaded the app, open it and log in to your American Airlines account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can create one by selecting “Create Account” on the login page.

Step 3: Select Your Trip

After logging in, select “Trips” from the menu at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up a list of your upcoming trips with American Airlines.

Step 4: Check-In for Your Flight

Find the trip you want to check-in for and select it. This will bring up more details about your trip, including your flight information. To check-in for your flight, simply select “Check-In” next to your flight information.


You can only check-in through the AA mobile app if:

  • Your flight is departing within 24 hours
  • You have an electronic ticket (e-ticket)
  • You are not traveling with an infant or pet
  • Your itinerary does not include any international flights

Step 5: Choose Your Seat and Add Baggage

Once you’ve checked in, you’ll be prompted to choose your seat and add any baggage if necessary. American Airlines allows you to check up to 10 bags, but keep in mind that fees apply for checked baggage.

Step 6: Save Your Boarding Pass

After selecting your seat and adding any baggage, you’ll be able to save your boarding pass to your phone. This will allow you to easily access it when it’s time to board your flight.


If you’re traveling with others, you can add their boarding passes to your app as well by selecting “Add Boarding Pass” from the menu.


Checking in for your flight on the AA mobile app is quick and easy. Just download the app, log in, select your trip, and check-in.

You’ll be able to choose your seat, add baggage, and save your boarding pass all from the convenience of your phone. Happy travels!
