On Friday, American Airlines introduced a touchless check-in process for passengers checking baggage on domestic flights.
The process enables passengers when checking in via app or American's website to indicate the number of bags they will check. Upon arrival at the airport, they can scan a mobile or printed boarding pass at a kiosk to print their luggage tags. The technology is available at 230 airports as of Friday, according to an American spokesperson.
American also has begun rolling out a new inflight Wi-Fi portal that the carrier said makes the sign-in process easier for passengers. In the new portal, passengers can use their AAdvantage account and stored credit card information to buy Internet access on flights. Passengers still can buy Internet access as a guest without using an AAdvantage account if they prefer.
