American Airlines rolled out a branded iPhone app this week. It handles the basics, viewing a reservation, checking in for your flight, flight status, and ability to view your AAdvantage balance. There are some other little trinkets as well. AA included a Sudoku game to entertain you while you wait for your flight, and a novel little option called “Parking Reminder.” You can add a note on where you parked or even use the iPhone’s camera to snap a photo and store it with your flight information.
I can’t wait to try out the app’s check in features during my next trip. I will post my experience with the app when I have a chance to use it for a flight. My next AA flight is this Wednesday. Download the app here.
