Online check-in

For domestic American Airline flights it is possible to check in online from 24 hours up until 45 minutes before the departure of the flight. For all international flights, online check-in will be available up until 90 minutes prior to the flight's departure. In order to check in online, passengers must enter their first and last name as well as their Record Locator, or booking reference number. Once check-in is complete, passengers will receive their boarding pass which they can either print right away or have emailed to them to print at a later date. Boarding passes can also be saved on a mobile device.

Hand luggage allowance

All passengers travelling on an American Airlines flight can take 1 piece of hand baggage as well as 1 personal item. These items include handbags, cameras and laptop cases. Hand luggage should not be larger than 56 x 36 x 23 cm, including the wheels and handle, as it must fit in the overhead locker. Musical instruments that meet the hand baggage requirements are permitted to be taken instead of a piece of baggage. Liquids are also allowed on board as long as each container does not exceed 100 ml. All liquid containers must fit into a sealed plastic bag.

Checked baggage allowance

The amount of hold luggage a passenger can take with them on American Airlines flights is dependent on their flight route. Those who are flying domestically within the United States or to a transpacific or transatlantic location are allowed up to 10 pieces of checked luggage. Passengers flying on an American Airlines flight to all other routes are only allowed up to 5 pieces of luggage.

Checked luggage must not exceed 23 kg for all flights except for Brazil, where the allowance is up to 32 kg. The size of the luggage may not exceed 158 cm once all of the dimensions of the luggage have been added together.

First flight was on a really old plane that was far too small and ill equipped for a transatlantic journey. The plane had ashtrays and screens in the aisles you couldn't even see due to the overhead lockers. I got to spend 9.5 hrs listening to films. The second flight was cancelled due to damage to the plane and the replacement flight late due to computer problems.
