Travel Information: Seating options from American Airlines

I haven't paid much attention before to the different type of seats available in American Airlines planes. Today I took a few minutes and cleared my doubt.


American Airlines has enhanced its seat choice offering to provide a more customized travel experience.

Pre-Reserved Seats

  • You may select an available seat based on seat inventory when you book your flight or any time prior to departure at no charge
  • If there are no seats available or you choose not to select a seat, you will receive an automatically-assigned seat at no charge at check-in as early as 24 hours before departure

Preferred Plus Seats

  • Reserved exclusively for premium* and full-fare customers, Preferred Plus seats are window and aisle seats toward the front of the aircraft and include exit row seats
  • Preferred Plus Seats offer the same number of desirable seat options as always and are set aside at no charge for premium and full fare customers

Preferred Seats

  • For customers interested in desirable seats near the front of the main cabin, Preferred Seats are available for purchase when you book your flight, up until the airport check-in cutoff time, beginning at $4 USD per flight
  • Preferred Seats can be purchased through, mobile, Self-Service Check-In machines and AA Reservations
  • Premium and full-fare customers have complimentary access to Preferred Seats
  • Preferred Seats are also complimentary for active U.S. military and their family members traveling on a military or government fare in the same reservation. If not traveling on a military or government fare, active U.S. military can request a Preferred Seat from an airport agent if available.
We're excited to provide you with even more options to customize your travel experience based on your needs.
