FORT WORTH, TEXAS (BNO NEWS) — American Airlines on Monday released the first version of its application for iPhone and iPod Touch, offering customers a new way to stay connected with the airline while they are traveling.

The new iPhone application allows American to provide the most relevant day-of-travel information. The application knows and displays who the customer is and where they are going – from where they are departing and what gate, to where they will sit, and where they are on the standby list, once they are logged in.

With the new applications, customers are able to enter log in and password only once, allowing the application to push upcoming flight details to the home screen automatically, set a parking reminder, monitor the standby list, track elite status progress, view personal flight details, receive gate, seat and flight status information at a glance, access Mobile Boarding Pass, use GPS to locate the nearest airport served by America, view terminal maps and play Sudoku.

The app also provides access to a variety of other tools that help customers manage, plan and further enjoy each trip on American Airlines like to book and check-in for flights, create flight status notifications and check flight status and schedules.

The new iPhone application will be introduced in several phases as the airline continues to develop the capabilities of the tool, including an iPad-specific version in the coming weeks. The application can be downloaded for free at
