American Airline infrequent flyers may notice a new boarding being rolled out.
Customers without overhead compartment luggage will now be allowed to board before Group 2. The table below illustrates the pecking order for the boarding process.
This may be welcome news for the infrequent flyer who doesn’t place a carryon in the overhead compartment. Most frequent American Airlines flyers won’t be effected. For example those with PriorityAAccess, the Citi® Platinum Select® / AAdvantage® Visa Signature® Card, AAdvantage Platinum, or First Class passengers will still be able to board prior or with Group 1.
