American Airlines announced the release of version 2020.05 of its smartphone app, adding several new features including a new “Waitlist” feature that combines upgrade and standby lists for a particular flight.

The airline began to use a new format for numbering versions of the app two months ago.  The new format begins with the four-digit year followed by a period separator, which is then followed by the two-digit number of the version.

The new waitlist feature will display traveler status by cabin. Once an upgrade request clears, the app will display the individual traveler’s name and new seat number on the list

Earlier in the year, American updated the app to make the upgrade list visible in the app eight hours prior to departure, instead of the previous four hours.
