Quick question for those "in the know" about AA reservations policy.

Can I book an exit row seat upon making my reservation? I know I can on Delta and Northwest, but I don't know about AA. I'll be flying SFO-LAX-LIH-LAX-SFO in October, and I would really prefer to be in an exit row, at least on the LAX-LIH-LAX portion. If I can't book it, can I call and request? Or can I only get them when I check-in? If at check-in, can I get them when I check-in online?

Thanks a bundle!!

Brian

Brian,

If you have status with AA (Gold or higher) you can indeed book an exit row seat. I do it all the time (as it is the only bearable way of flying on AA these days) using the online system. However, if you don't have status, I don't think their online system will makes the exit row seats available for you.

Regards,

Tony

Yeah, I definately don't have status on AA (only leisure flying for me).

I know that I cannot book the seats online, but what about phoning in a request, selecting them at on-line check-in or requesting them at check-in? Any help is appreciated! Also, does AA offer the ability to pay for an upgrade to first? Flights are on a Tuesday, and I usually find openings in First when I fly. On TZ, there was a $40 charge e/w to upgrade to their "business" class (bigger seat, pre-take off drinks).

If there are seats open they will. I paid for upgrades on both my AA flights for 45 dollars one way. Price is done by distance.

Snath is right - we offer exit row seating online to our top tier flyers. For all others, exit row seating is available upon request on day of departure


..everything works out in the end.

I think hes right. Fortunately I have acheived lifetime status on AA, so I can request exit rows, however, I believe you must ask at the gate day of, otherwise. I just flew in an exit row this week, on a 767 to SCL, and I was on a super 80, and 737 in them a few weeks ago. It certainly is better than flying in the regular coach seats, but remember, you do lose some width, due to the immoveable armrests and tray tables. Alos if your flying international, consider using miles to upgrade to business. It is certainly a worthy miles usage, and will make your flight much more comfortable.
