Comments

  1. According to AA, Flagship Check-In will be expanded to ORD. Interesting to note that DFW is omitted. AA has such a dominant market share at DFW that customers there get shortchanged when it comes to introducing new services. Innovation usually moves to the point of greatest competition. DFW will be at the end of the line, unfortunately.

  2. Re: “Customer service representatives who can personally assist with your individual travel requirements – from check-in and baggage check to seat or itinerary changes”
    Isn’t that what the staff at the regular check in counters do?
