This is truly the worst of the airline apps. It continues to log me out despite my selection to keep me logged in, which is inconvenient when trying to pull up a boarding pass. It is also incredibly slow and often freezes completely and has to be restarted. It is so bad that it makes me look for alternate airlines whenever there is a choice on a route.

This app is absolutely horrible. Hard to navigate, lots of options take you to the same place, and flights do not get updated in the app. It wouldn't show my boarding passes, updated flight information, or how to find anything on the paper ticket. I had a cancellation and changed the flight, and got the app notification about the new flight but that actual app still shows my cancelled one from yesterday. It's just a confusing and difficult app, with many problems.

The UI for this app is difficult to navigate. It took me over 20 minutes to find the correct place to check in for a flight. The app is also useless if two passengers on your booking have the same first name??? Because my father and I share a first name it is impossible to check either of us in without calling AA and setting up an AA rewards account. The rest of the members on the flight were checked in.
