Changes I Can Like… Coming To American Airlines

A thread on FlyerTalk highlights the silent changes that happened to American Airlines’ policies as the merger festivities kicked off:

  • Minimum time for checking in (online or at the airport) without baggage at a U.S. airport is no longer 30 minutes, but is the same as the one with bags (i.e. airport-dependent, and mostly 45 minutes);
  • Minimum time for checking in (even without baggage) for flights departing the U.S. for an international destination is now 60 minutes. The way it’s written, this includes departures to Canada, Mexico, and non-U.S. Caribbean Islands
  • Minimum time for checking in (even without baggage) has increased to 45 minutes in all hubs plus a lot of other airports:
    • Airports increasing from 30 minutes to 45 minutes: CLT, PHL, PHX and PIT
    • Airports increasing from 40 minutes to 45 minutes: ATL, ORD, DFW, EWR, MCO, SFO, SJU, SEA, TPA, IAD
