American Airlines has made a change to its app that will be appreciated by American frequent flyers.
It is nice to know how many seats are left on a flight. American Airlines has a new app update that addresses that.
There was a pop-up when I opened the app after I installed the update.
What has changed since then? The upgrade priority list and the backup priority list are displayed by American Airlines before departure. It is possible to look at this if you are booked on a flight, but you can also search upgrade lists even if you are not on a flight.
What has changed since then? The number of available seats has been added to the list. Take the list from Miami to Dallas. There are a lot of people on the waiting list for an upgrade but no first class seats left.
There are quite a few people on the list and 33 available seats.
It's really useful to have this information.
I think this is a good improvement to the American Airlines app, but I think Delta and United have been doing this for a long time.
American is catching up with Delta and United when it comes to technology. The airline is a long way behind. American isn't as bad as JetBlue when it comes to technology, but it's still far behind.
American has made improvements to its website and app, like being able to book online with vouchers, instead of having to call.
There are still many improvements that would be great to see, such as being able to upgrade online, being able to fully refunds award flights online, etc.
The American Airlines app now shows how many seats are left within eight hours of departure. This change will give you a better idea of your chances of clearing.
If there are no seats remaining, your chances of clearing are very different than if there are.
This update of the American Airlines app is appreciated by everyone.
