The Tower by American Airlines is a Windows 8 Metro app for visualizing American Airlines flights.
This slick app gives you a visual overview of American Airline flights in 6 major US airport hubs. It provides a variety of information from the status of a flight in progress to ETAs and delay updates. You can even view the layout of the terminal that a flight is arriving in, plus the longitude and latitude of a flight.
A lot of this information is not exactly essential for someone who just wants to check the progress of a flight. However, The Tower by American Airlines is very well presented throughout and navigating the various hubs and features is very easy. Note that some users have reported that not all American Airline flights are included in The Tower by American Airlines.
The Tower by American Airlines is a slick app for frequent American Airline flyers who need to keep tabs on flights.
