New AA.com On The Way?

Mon Mar 18, 2002 7:26 am

Hi Everyone,

I had read a couple of weeks ago that a new website for AA would debut in March. This was to be a complete revamping -- not just enhancements to the existing page. Has anyone else heard the same? Or have any information about this?

Thanks,

Ezra.

It will be privately released to employees to view first, then released to the general public. But yes, a new website (finally) will be released to the public soon.

Thank god! Their current website is horrible to navigate! You cant press the back button without a Action Cancelled page. And when you do press the back button, sometimes you get an entirely different page than the actual page you were previously looking at.

Good Lord I hope so...Also, when you book online, you can only book 4 multi-city legs..Sometimes My trips take me on up to 7 differenrt cities on a trip. Hopefully they fix that also.
