AA app experience has been horrible. Constantly states it cannot find the reservation. Boarding tickets dissappear after checking in or simply does not pull up. extremely slow to process Regardless of wifi or high speed data connection. Absolute garbage customer experience, please fix this. It is inexcusable that this has not been addressed for a premier airline. American Airlines, you are a premier airline, correct? Please fix the app.

Horrible UI. Every time you open the app it seems to decide at random which options to include on the main screen. The app also revoked my boarding pass for a layover flight just because they thought it would be too close for me to make it. I made the flight, but had to ask the attendant in person to let me on, despite the fact that I had already checked in to the flight hours before. That delay almost made me miss my flight and spend a night in the airport. Unacceptable

While the flight attendants and pilots were fantastic the app is horrible. It locked up & wouldn't let me view boarding passes an hour prior to flight. Couldn't board our resolve, app locked up my trip so the kiosks couldn't print pass. Missed flight, causing missed connecting flight. Arrived 8 hours late to destination. When app manually fixed by support staff, it canceled me return flight. 2 hours on hold to get new return flight. No plans to ever use American airlines again. Horrible App
