Electronic Equipment/Personal Devices
Good news! You're now able to read your e-books, play games, and watch videos on your portable electronic devices from gate to gate within the U.S. There are a few things to keep in mind during taxi, takeoff and landing:
- Devices will need to be in airplane mode and you'll need to secure them by either holding or placing them under your seat.
- Wi-Fi access on equipped aircraft will be available shortly after takeoff.
- This change doesn't apply to larger items such as laptops. Those items will still need to be stowed.
This change won't be implemented on some of American's regional flights (operated as American Eagle) until later this year. Because the safety of our customers and people is always our top priority, you should still listen to all safety briefings and comply with crewmember instructions.
