It’s Sunday morning. Palm Sunday. The sun is up, and so is AA.com. I took my own advice yesterday and decided to leave AA.com alone for the evening. I woke up to a website that is still displaying the message that they are working on things.
But this morning, I can successfully log into the site. My upcoming flights are there, my mileage balances, including program and million miler, have transferred, and my join date of the program reflects my original 1987 date when I joined the Piedmont Airlines Frequent Flyer Bonus Program. There are some cosmetic changes to the website, including a new last name requirement when logging in. This applies to the smartphone apps as well – check your app store for an update this morning. Updates were pushed to iTunes this morning for the AA iPhone/iPad app, and the US iPhone app.
Notably, the account homepage has a fresh new look as reported by Miles to Memories this morning.
Did you catch that flight notifications are now called Be Notified? That’s a carry over from US Airways, though it looks like it’s the original AA system with a new name. There’s also a link, “Dividend Miles transferred” that will list the exact miles they pulled into your AAdvantage account from Dividend miles. All in all, I think they’re doing pretty well with this one. Of course, there are likely still some kinks to be worked out, and that should be expected in an IT project this huge. So far so good, and I’ll say it anyway – brAAvo!
