American Airlines Adds More Premium Seats along with First-Ever Biometric Boarding Program at LAX

American’s First-Ever Biometric Boarding Program Arrives at LAX

Better boarding for American Airlines customers has arrived at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) with the launch of the carrier’s first-ever biometric boarding pilot program.

American customers traveling on select international departures from LAX Terminal 4 can now enjoy additional convenience during the departure process thanks to cutting-edge technology. Instead of scanning boarding passes, the new one-step facial recognition program will scan and verify a customer’s identity with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in seconds at the gate.
