New Boarding Pass
Improving your travel experience
To make your boarding process faster and more efficient, we have redesigned our boarding pass with a modern, new look which includes more helpful information to get you on your way. You will notice new enhancements to your boarding pass if you check-in and retrieve it on aa.com. Most of the updates are outlined below, so please take a moment to see how we are enhancing your travel experience!
Your boarding pass will now indicate if you are eligible for TSA PreCheck by including it on this new version of the boarding pass. Experience expedited screening benefits with the TSA PreCheck program.
Your AAdvantage® status or boarding group will now be identifiable via the circle in the bottom left corner of your boarding pass. If your circle is shaded black, this indicates Priority Access boarding. Otherwise, your boarding group number will be listed in the circle.
There is also a stronger focus on the boarding time as it is more prominently displayed in this shaded box.
And, your departure date will now include the day of the week. The departure time is listed below the boarding time and now includes the time zone.
Under the More Flight Details section, services such as Wi-Fi and food for purchase will be noted on your new boarding pass. This feature will allow you to plan ahead if you would like to bring a Wi-Fi enabled device onboard or if you would like to dine while in flight.
Additionally, we've added the duration of your flight to the right of the More Flight Details section. For your convenience, now you can see the length of your flight on the new boarding pass.
