  1. I used AA.com to try to retrieve my receipt for a meal I paid with my credit card on board AA34 on 20th May 2015 as directed by the flight attendant. Last 4 digits of my credit card is 9505. However, I there was no such record found.

    • Hi Paul,

      My experience has been that it can sometime take a few days for the transaction to post. Did you ever retrieve your receipt?

  2. No, always got a negative message that search could not be found. Gave up and will not be using this function or purchasing anything else on board if use AA again.
