American Airlines removes app from the Windows Phone Store; airline will no longer support the platform

American Airlines removes app from the Windows Phone Store; airline will no longer support the platform
American Airlines has removed its app from the Windows Phone Store, and at the same time, the airline says that it is dropping its support for the platform. It was this past June when American added its app to the Windows Phone Store. This seems like an odd thing for the airline to do in light of a recent update that was pushed out to the app in September.

The app allowed those using a phone powered by Microsoft's mobile OS to book a flight, check-in, find out the gate number, pick a seat on the plane, and check flight-status. A virtual boarding pass would be added to the user's mobile wallet, to make flying less of a hassle.

Back in 2012, the airline choose the Samsung GALAXY Note for their 17,000 flight attendants. That gesture was repeated with an upgrade the following year to the Samsung GALAXY Note II. And American's pilots also use the Apple iPad (using special software) instead of heavy paper charts and maps.

This hasn't impacted either the iOS or Android app for the airline, both of which which remain available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store, respectively.
