Free Priority check-in when booking AA with Avios

Twice in the past 3 months we have been able to verify that when you use your Avios to book a domestic flight on its partner, American Airlines, you are automatically given Group 1 Priority check-in.

Priority check-in not only lets you board first and not have to fight a ton of other people for the overhead space, but it also gets you through security just a little quicker than regular check-in, as it lets you bypass the main TSA line on your way to your security screening.

So when you book American with Avios (here’s an example), your boarding pass should automatically say Priority Boarding. Keep it in mind, and try to take advantage of the benefit. With TSA budget cuts and lines getting longer and longer every day, each saved minute counts when you’re trying to speed up through security on the way to your gate.
