Flying with us
Before you go
You need to check-in to your purchased flight within 24 hours before scheduled departure. You can check-in online or download the American app, where you can:
- Get flight status updates (notification in case of any changes or delay)
- Find airport information
Beijing (PKX) and Shanghai (PVG) airport
As an international traveler, we recommend you arrive at the airport at least 3 hours before your flight to allow enough time to check your bags, clear security and get to the gate. American’s Shanghai flights fly out of Terminal 2 at PVG airport, while flights arriving in Beijing will soon be relocated to Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX).
Dallas - Fort Worth airport
DFW is one of the largest airports in the country, with 5 operational terminals and our new Flagship™ lounge in Terminal D. Inflight announcements will include your landing gate information, including baggage claim and connections.
The American Way magazines provided at every seat have a map of DFW to help you navigate.
