American Airlines upgrades its corporate benefits program

How American is striving to become the easiest airline to do business with.

American Airlines upgraded its benefits program to prioritize corporate travelers across Atlantic Joint Business partners on each carrier’s Prime flights, British Airways, Finnair, and Iberia.

Preferred Seats on

Corporate travelers can access their complimentary Preferred Seats on or using the AA mobile app after ticketing. Travelers are not required to include their AAdvantage® or oneworld frequent flyer membership number in their reservation before requesting seats. Elite status frequent flyers can access preferred seats during the booking process or by visiting

Downgrade protection prioritization

If accommodations must be made for all travelers on a certain flight, corporate travelers receive enhanced prioritization to maintain their cabin selection.

These benefits are in addition to an existing suite of perks, including:

Leisure discounts offered through AAV

Corporate travelers can save on special vacation packages that bundle air and non-flight components like hotels, rental cars, theme park tickets, tours and more.

Complimentary Priority Access

Complimentary Priority Access includes Priority Check-in at ticket counter lines, Priority Security, Priority Access prints on boarding tickets, and Priority boarding to Boarding Group 4 unless a traveler is eligible for a higher boarding group priority based on AAdvantage® elite status or fare purchased.

Auto re-accommodation prioritization

Corporate travelers receive higher priority for re-accommodation during irregular operations.

American Airlines always looks for ways to make corporate benefits more valuable, and these updates are another example of how American is striving to become the easiest airline to do business with.
