30th Apr 2003

FORT WORTH, Texas - Not only does American Airlines help speed customers through the airport with its convenient Flight Check-In feature on, it can also help make their next trip to the airport more rewarding by offering a chance to win a new 2003 Lincoln Aviator®. Until June 15, 2003, customers using the Flight Check-In feature on or taking the online demo and forwarding it to friends, can earn up to five entries to win one of three exciting prizes: a new 2003 Lincoln Aviator, a First Class trip for two or a portable printer.

Flight Check-In on is American’s latest alternative to the ticket counter and complements other convenient self-service airport check-in options. Customers traveling on domestic e-tickets can now print their boarding passes and request certain upgrades - all from the convenience of their homes, offices or wherever a computer with internet access and a printer is available. Flight Check-In on is available to customers beginning 12 hours prior to the scheduled flight, and up to one hour prior to departure. Customers simply log on to with their AAdvantage® number and password, then from the “Reservations” tab select “Flight Check-In.” When arriving at the airport, customers can head straight for the security entrance with their boarding pass and a government-issued photo ID. If customers who use Flight Check-In have luggage, they are encouraged to use Curbside Check-In upon arrival at the airport
