One of the top two travel apps ever made!

App in The Air is my second favorite travel app ever (the first, and in my opinion the best is Flighty). While most of the REALLY good travel apps have “upped their game”, App in The Air and Flighty have gone above and beyond to stand out and supply you information that is not only useful, but also necessary, accurate and nicely displayed.

I’m a premium subscriber to both apps and I believe that paying for the premium subscriptions is well worth it, if you fly more than a couple of times a year. It’s also worth noting that the “really good” travel apps (such as these) spend a lot of money to provide their apps with the timely and accurate data feeds that provide the end user (that’s me and you) with all of this detailed travel information that we’re seeing.

Hit and miss

Automatic checkin was really handy on my first check in, but on my second it changed my pre-selected “main cabin extra” seat 8A to 25C (which shouldn’t even have been possible if I *didnt* have a pre-assigned seat given my auto checkin preferences). That makes auto check-in useless (I had to go into the American app and reselect my seat, which was fortunately still available). For flight info and updates it’s handy: automatically detected my reservations from my email so there was no data entry. It didn’t pick up the correct seat assignment from my American Airlines reservations (e.g. 12F instead of 12B somehow on one flight), but it was easy enough to edit that, and I’d use my boarding pass on the plane anyway. It also let me know about a lounge at STL I didn’t know about before, although it wasn’t in the terminal I was going to. It’s managed to replace Kayak as my source of flight info, although Kayak is free. I hope auto checkin gets more reliable, because it would be handy if I could trust it to not thoroughly screw up my prepaid seat assignment.

Hello, Grant. That's Alex from App in the Air team. Firstly, let me say thank you for using our app and for your lifetime subscription. Let me apologize for the issue with auto check-in. I want to check what's happening. Can you please tell me your flight number and dates at, and I'll check it. I will be waiting for your email. Alex

Good app but some UI improvements needed

I fly >100k miles a year with a mix of international and domestic destinations. This app is great to predict potential delays and also track my overall progress and other stats (types of planes, milestones, etc). The only negative is how it displays the current flight status as tiles where I have to swipe to see the anticipated arrival gate, etc and the location of the plane midnight doesn’t provide a map since I’m not hooked up to the internet. This is where Tripit and FlightRadar24 best this app out respectively. Tripit provides a really quick snapshot of what I have to do and where I need to go. While FlightRadar pretty much provides near real time data on the plane among other things. True, flightradar also needs WiFi, but it provides far more useful information when connected such as weather along the flight path, where other flights are coming from, etc. I typically use this app, flightradar, and Tripit to predict delays. I wish there was one app.

Hello Doc. My name is Alex, I'm from App in the Air team. Let me thank you for your review. Glad to hear the info in the App is useful for you. The idea of our timeline is to separate all the stages of the flight on the current moment of time. So if you preparing for your flight, you will see the status of departure. At the airport, you will see the current airport statuses. And after the landing, you will see your landing statuses, including the gate of arrival. So do you want to sell all the stages of the flight on one page? Maybe there will be a lot of info on one screen in this kind of design? For checking your route during the flight you need the internet. You can't get the data on the map without the online status. But you can see your approximate position on the map. We are loading the last information about the flight when you open it before the flight, this also applies to the flight map. In any case, we are actively developing and improving our app according to revi
ews. Thank you very much. We will see how to make the timeline screen more convenient, and the map more informative. Please, feel free to contact me at with your nickname "DocNartman" if you have any ideas or questions. Alex
