American Airlines Flight Tracker - Check Your Flight Status
Are you looking for a status update on an American Airline flight? On this page, you can find real-time information on arrival and departure flights from American Airlines. Checking your flight status is important as delays and cancellations occur often. Did you know that nearly 20% of American Airline flights were delayed in 2018? These delays peaked in July. Less than 2% of American Airline flights were canceled, but flight cancellations were highest in March. If you’re traveling in July or March, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the live updates for your flight.
You can easily find your flight information with your flight number. If you don’t know the flight number for an American Airline flight, you can search for it based on the arrival or departure city through the airport-specific flight search page here.
Cancellations and delays happen because of weather, the national aviation system, air carrier delays or security issues. What happens when there’s a delay? American Airlines has its own delay policies. Representatives will let passengers know about delays as well as updates within 30 minutes of finding out. For flights that have been delayed or canceled, and for flights that have been diverted to another city, if you aren’t boarded before 11:59 p.m. at the local time, overnight accommodation will be arranged for you. If the delay or cancellation is because of something outside of the control of American Airlines (such as extreme weather), you will have to provide your own accommodations.
To make sure you’re getting up-to-date notifications, be sure your airline has the right contact information for you. Using a live flight tracker, you can also get updates as soon as possible regarding your American Airlines flights.
