American Airlines (PHL–NAS)

Airline

I recently flew American Airlines to the Bahamas for a bachelorette party. I have flown the airline many times, though I am not used to flying in a large group.

 

I was the first in my group to arrive to the airport. As I approached security, I realized my boarding pass on my phone didn’t include my TSA PreCheck status. Since I was early and the security line wasn’t crowded, I went to the ticketing counter to get a new boarding pass. While the attendant wasn’t the friendliest American employee I encountered that day, she swiftly provided me with an updated pass and I was through security in no time.

 

The rest of my group met me shortly. Even though we were in different boarding groups, many of us boarded early with group four. As we settled into our seats, we realized the plane was nowhere near full. Two women in my group had their entire rows to themselves.

 

One of my seatmates in our group is a nervous flyer. She informed the flight attendant when asking some questions about our flight. The flight attendant was friendly and assured her we were safe, which helped calm her nerves.

 

Though our flight was scheduled at three hours, we were on the ground in the Bahamas in about two hours. The landing was smooth, just like the rest of our flight. It was a great start to our trip!
