Howdy A.netters,

I just looked through my e-ticket confirmation for CLL-DFW-LGA on Friday and unfortunately there is one point I do not completely understand. Since I have never flown on AA before I need some help from AA-experienced US fellows concerning the check-in procedure.

The confirmation says:

"If you have a U.S. DOMESTIC E-TICKET, check in for your flight using Flight Check-In at AA.com between 1 and 24 hours prior to flight time. Use the E-TICKET confirmation/record locator above to select or change your seat and obtain a boarding pass. On day of departure, you will be required to present a government-issued photo-ID at the airport."

Questions:

1. Do I have to use this form of check-in or can I just go to the airport and do a normal check-in at the counters as I am used to?

2. How can I check my baggage in when printing out my boarding pass at home?

I am sorry if these questions might seem dumb to some of you, but I would really appreciate your help.

Greetings from Aggieland

Frederik

Even if you print your boarding pass at home, you can still check your baggage curbside or at the ticket counter. If you don't have a pre-assigned seat assignment, I recommend checking in online so that you can get the best seat available, instead of waiting to see what's left at the airport. If you check-in at the airport, you can check-in the old fashion way, or you can use one of AA's One Stop self service check-in kiosks and check your bags there.

hahahahaha.... ok i'm sorry, you must not have ever been here in CLL. We are a very, very small station. 1 gate, 7 flights, 16 employees.... there is no curbside checkin nor do we have a self-service kiosk. You can check in online, print out your boarding passes, and then check your bags at the ticket counter, or you can just check everything at the same time at the ticket counter. Either way works for domestic trips. For international trips, you cannot check in online.

Hope this helps!

I didn't even pay attention to the city pairs, just that the flight was domestic. I guess that makes a difference!  scratchchin

Well at least the curbside/kiosk information is helpful for the return trip.
