Important information and commonly asked questions

Citi Flex Pay on American Airlines is a feature built-in exclusively to eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit cards that allows you to pay over time in equal monthly payments for aa.com and American app flight purchases at checkout.

When you are booking a flight on aa.com or the American App with your eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card, Citi Flex Pay may appear as a payment option on your Review and Pay page for eligible purchases; simply choose the monthly payment option that works best for you. After you book your flight, the flight amount will be charged to your eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card and deducted from your available credit. However, only your Citi Flex Pay monthly payment will be added to the Minimum Payment Due at each Billing Cycle, until paid in full. This will be reflected on your Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card statement. If you want to take advantage of Citi Flex Pay at a later time, other Citi Flex Pay options may be available on your Citi Online account after purchase.

Citi Flex Pay on American Airlines can only be used in connection with flights purchased in US dollars on aa.com or the American app using your eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card. Ancillary fees, including but not limited to checked baggage fees, upgrades, and seat selection fees, are not eligible for Citi Flex Pay at checkout; however, other Citi Flex Pay options may be available on your Citi Online account after purchase. See Card Agreement for more details.

Yes. If your eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card currently earns miles and/or Loyalty Points on flight purchases, you will continue to earn those rewards for flight purchases made using Citi Flex Pay on aa.com or the American app as you normally would.

In most cases, refunds will be processed within 7 business days and a credit will appear on your eligible Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card account. Merchant Refunds are applied to your existing credit card balance. However, if you would like the credit applied to your Citi Flex Plan, call the number on the back of your Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card. Please see your Card Agreement for additional information on Merchant Refunds.
