It would appear that American Airlines' security problems aren't the
exception...they're the rule.

Subject: aa.com not encrypting customer transaction data

Looks like aa.com (American Airlines) is NOT encrypting customer data for
purchasing e-tickets.
Hopefully this isn't still the case by the time this posts.
This hold true for both Advantage login and non-members as well.
At no time did I get a redirect to an SSL server for my session.

Taking a peek at the "Passenger Details" page source, no where do you find
"https" or ":443", hmm.
Next I make a phony submission and low and behold this is what I grabbed:
" f o r m % C I _ C r e d i t C a r d T o U s e _ C a
 r d N u m b e r "   v a l u e = " 4 3 2 3 5 0 1 9 8 3 5 1 9 9 9 9 "

I've made serveral phone calls to aa.com and generated a few e-mail. 
I can't convince them I'm wrong, so I bring it to this forum.
