Flying American for first time tomorrow. Boarding group 6. Am I likely to have overhead bin space? Used to Delta which has fewer boarding groups.

Can we just take a moment to acknowledge how ridiculous it is that American has 9 boarding groups.

AA does groups 1 through 9. So latter third

Likely unless it’s a tiny jet. But prepare to fight your way to front of group.

You should be okay. If your seat is towards the front you will likely have to place bag at back of the plane though.

More actually since they do pre boarding, military, then CK before they even get to group 1. But then groups 1-4 are typically all read off within super quick succession. It's a total mess.

Absolutely not. Might as well suck it up and gate check. You will be those people you see when your already sitting down and have been for awhile, thank you status. You remember your sitting there thinking “god you poor pleb they closed all the bins why are you still looking?” Or “Oh god don’t do it your meandering back to the front like that’s a better option for him space?”

Depends on route. Major city to major city with a hub involved, not likely

I was group 6 and forced to check my bag through from ATL to ORD just last week. But other times it’s been fine. So who knows.

No

Just walk. It will be more pleasant

What was the end result OP?

I was fine when I was in Group 5

My flight is in a few hours (delayed). Will prob just gate check it if they offer it for free.
