Hello all:

I´ve a trip planned for the next week with AA between JFK and MIA. My question is the following:

Can I check in online and print the boarding pass at the airport (that´s because I´ll probably won´t have access to a printer machine).

Also I´d like to know about how do I check my baggage during the online check in.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

767AV

For this you check in online, then there's a bag drop counter at the airport. They tag your bag as normal then you pick it up at your destination.

Not sure if you can print out in the airport though. That would sort of defeat the point of checking in online.

AA kiosk have the ability to reprint boarding passes at the airport, however since you are going to see an agent anyways for your bag, you might as well handle everything there.

Is there any chance that I lose the seats that I choose during booking?

If you check in online you would already have a seat assigned, when you re-print, you basically just re-print that boarding pass with the seat you selected at the time of online check in

I don't know of any US-based airline that you can't check in on-line at that doesn't give you the ability to reprint your boarding pass at the airport, as they realize that you may want to check in for various reasons but don't have access to a printer at the time.

For example, you may want to check in at the 24-hour mark to change your seats on airlines that only open up certain blocks of seats to the unwashed masses at that point (e.g. DL), or to get on the upgrade list (some airlines use check-in time as a tiebreaker for customers with the same overall status), etc.

This is my point. I´d like to check in online at the 24 hour mark but probably won´t have access to a printer. So my idea is to check in online with my laptop and collect my boarding pass at the airport.

Thanks

No unless there is an aircraft swap or something.

Booked seats are held until the cutoff and then released to people like stand-by passengers.

The seat you picked when you purchased your ticket will be the seat you got. AA is great about seats and you can change or check them anytime even without checking in.
