Any airport that accepts printed boarding cards should accept mobile boarding cards. Ensure you have sufficient battery charge for your journey. If in doubt you should contact the airport or check the airports FAQs on their website.

Yes, print at home if you check-in online. That way you'll avoid extra fees. Enjoy!

I've never travelled with BA/AA but with Skyteam they don't charge any extra for printing at the airport. Make sure you have a copy of your ESTA number and that you've given the airline or agent your Advanced Passenger Information (address where you are staying in the USA, if multiple places it's the first place you stay, passport number and name and address) and just check in at the American Airlines desk or self service kiosk. It might be a bit of both. With KLM at Cardiff Airport there's a self check in machine that you print your boarding pass then if you have any checked baggage you drop it off at the check in desk.
Hope this helps and enjoy your trip!

If you have the ability to print at home i would do that.

I seem to recall a European ruling saying airlines couldn't charge for them.

If you have the mobile boarding pass then you won't need the paper one you've already checked in and have the boarding pass. That may explain why it won't let you print a paper one out. If there are any problems they can always print you out one at the airport. I've had to do that a few times especially when i've tried to board using an Alaska Airlines printed boarding pass onto a KLM/Delta flight. Have great flight!

Do these apps require the internet connection?
Hi Alice1

You will need internet connection initially before you make your journey to download the barcode image but once you've downloaded that you just need your mobile device to be charged so it's accessible when you need it. If you don't download the barcode image then you will need internet access to get it when your at the airport. In anycase, you don't need to worry as if you loose your phone you can still go to the airline ticket desk, or check-in desk to arrange an old-fashioned paper style boarding pass.
