American Airlines should poach some programmers from United who actually know how to make an app run correctly. This app is slow, hard to use, not intuitive and rarely functions with any speed. I can't think of any app (among the 400+) on my phone that load this slowly, if it ever loads. Miserable experience. You can't "pin" your boarding pass, once you find it. Want to find a previous trip or see the miles you're earning? Good luck. Thank goodness I don't fly AA often or I'd go crazy.

No filter option, so you have to scroll through all the stupid 2 stop options & the even more stupid 24 hr+/overnight options. It's so overwhelming that it's impossible to find what you really want. I'm not even going to consider this airline with an app that is this horrible. If you make it this hard to find flights, it's not worth the potential cost savings; I'll book with your competition.

Useless for booking flights ... the splash screens totally obfuscate the seemingly never ending pages of offers and acknowledgement screens. These completely eliminate the ability to get to the "Continue" buttons that are required to finally reach the screen where you can pay for a reservation or put it on hold. What a mess.
