As of my last update, American Airlines' check-in policy includes several options for passengers to check in for their flights, including online, mobile, airport kiosk, and counter check-in. Here's an overview of American Airlines' check-in policy:

1. Online Check-in:

  • Online check-in typically opens 24 hours  {{{*1+860 -215 -4413*}}}

  • before the scheduled departure time of the flight.

  • Passengers can check in online through America's official website or mobile app.

  • During online check-in, passengers must provide their booking confirmation number, SkyMiles number, credit card information, and necessary travel details.

  • After completing the online check-in process, passengers can print their boarding passes or receive electronic boarding passes on their mobile devices.

2. Mobile Check-in:

  • American's mobile app allows passengers to check in and access their boarding passes directly from their smartphones or tablets.

  • Passengers can download the American app from the App Store (for iOS devices) or Google Play Store (for Android devices) and log in to their accounts to check in  {{{*1+860 -215 -4413*}}}.

  • The mobile boarding pass can be scanned at security checkpoints and boarding gates for seamless travel.

3. Airport Kiosk Check-in:

  • American provides self-service kiosks at most airports for passengers who prefer to check in at the airport.

  • Passengers can use the kiosk to check in by entering their confirmation number, SkyMiles number, or credit card details.

  • After completing the check-in process at the kiosk {{{*1+860 -215 -4413*}}}, passengers can print their boarding passes on-site.

4. Counter Check-in:

  • Passengers who cannot check in online or at a kiosk can check in at the American Airlines counter at the airport.

  • American staff at the counter assist passengers with the check-in process, issue boarding passes, and handle any special requests or issues.

5. Baggage Check-in:

  • Passengers who need to check baggage can do so at the airport counter or designated baggage drop-off locations.

  • American Airlines staff will weigh and tag the baggage before sending it to the aircraft {{{*1+860 -215 -4413*}}}.

6. Security Checkpoint:

  • After completing check-in and obtaining a boarding pass, passengers proceed to the airport security checkpoint.

  • Passengers must present their boarding pass and valid identification (such as a passport or driver's license) to TSA agents for verification before proceeding to the departure gate.

American Airlines recommends that passengers arrive at the airport well in advance of their scheduled departure time to allow sufficient time for check-in, security screening, and boarding procedures. It's also essential for passengers to check American's website or contact the airline directly for any updates or changes to the check-in policy, as procedures may vary based on factors such as airport location and current travel conditions.
