American Airlines Introduces Online Check-In for Interline Customers at AA.com

American One of First Major Airlines to Offer Service for Passengers Connecting to Other Carriers

FORT WORTH, Texas, June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — American Airlines has made it easy for its passengers with connections to other airlines to check in at AA.com and print boarding passes for all flights in their itinerary. Flight Check-In at AA.com now makes it easy for domestic e-ticket passengers with interline connections on eligible carriers to check in online up to 24 hours prior to departure and print boarding passes, as long as the flight originates on American, American Eagle or AmericanConnection. Previously, customers with connections to other carriers were required to check in for each carrier separately and had to do so in person at the airport.

American Airlines passengers with connections to the following carriers can now check in and get boarding passes online:

* Alaska Airlines
* Continental Airlines
* Delta Air Lines
* Hawaiian Airlines
* Northwest Airlines
* US Airways
* Midwest Airlines

“Our customers lead busy lives, so we’re excited to be one of the first major airlines to offer this time-saving convenience,” said Rob Friedman, Managing Director – Interactive Marketing, at American. “With our new interline check in and boarding-pass issuance capability, customers can bypass airline ticket counters for qualifying connecting flights and head straight to Security before boarding at the gate. As always, passengers who have boarding passes but need to check bags may do so at Curbside Check-In upon arrival at the airport.”
