American Airlines has 9 boarding groups. 1-4 is their priority. Usually there will only be 1 or 2 in group one, and then a hand full in 2-3. So group 4 you will be ahead of 90% of the passengers usually. Passengers with gold status board with group 4 FYI

What route are you flying? I can tell you roughly how many people will be in groups 1-3 depending

At the end of the day all you really care about with getting on soon is to make sure there’s enough space in the overhead to put your carry-on so you don’t have to check it and wait once you arrive. Having said that, group 4 will get the job done 95% of the time Nobody actually wants to hurry up to get on the plane to sit on the runway unless they’re a psycho. Only exception is 1st class since they get to drink a free cocktail while they watch the rest of the peasants board. If overhead space wasn’t an issue I would be the last to board that damn plane ever time. Oh are we ready for take off? Sure I’ll grab a seat.

But yeah @C1 is right, group 4 isn’t bad

TSA precheck and Clear require background checks so no

CK boards first. Then Group 1 is first class. Group 2 is EP. Group 3 is Plat/Pro. Believe group 4 is all other priority. Depending on route there could be a lot of people in the first 3 groups esp during Monday / thurs travel times

Awesome! Thanks! Can i do priority security?

Why would you pay for boarding?

SC1 - priority boarding has nothing to do with clear or TSA precheck

I'm talking about normal priority line security (the same as furst class). Not tsa prechecked

Yes you can do priority security

Group 4 is with AAdvantage Gold. If you’re going to an AA hub (CLT, DFW, PHX, ORD, PHL) good luck because you’re still behind F (and active duty military with valid military ID), ExPlat, Concierge Key, Platinum Pro, and Platinum.

Learned something new!

So what are the chances i keep my carry-on? :D

Agree with C1, OP. AA usually doesn’t start taking carry on luggage until group 7-8 so you shouldn’t have any issues

Do you even consult bro?
