American Airlines Telephone Check-in

Sun Aug 11, 2002 4:57 am

Hello folks....
I'm curious to know if any of you have yet utilized American Airlines' Telephone Check-in system. I plan on trying it out on one of my trips this (no checked luggage). The way I understand it, I just call my Elite level's telephone hotline and follow the prompts to check in, then just present my Elite card when boarding the aircraft and have the boarding pass reader print out a receipt then I can proceed on board the aircraft.

Just wondering if any of you have experience with this and have any tips or advice for me. I'll be using it at Oklahoma City and at Omaha (neither have e-ticket machines.... I just use those when they are available as there is usually not a line due to people being scared of them).
