Delayed or canceled flights

Our goal is to always depart on time, but on occasion weather and other events impact our schedule – and yours. We know your time is valuable, and we’ll do our best to get you back on track as soon as possible. If your flight is canceled or a delay causes you to miss your connection, we’ll rebook you on the next flight with available seats.

We will reroute your bags automatically when you check in for your new flights.

There are 3 ways to view your new trip or to choose a different flight:

  • Open the American app
  • View or change your trip on
  • Use a kiosk in the airport

Once you log in, you can view trip changes or choose a different flight:
