Default If you're gonna fly AA, keep your dates flexible.

If your gonna fly AA, keep your dates flexible. If they can't jam every flight full or overbooked, your gonna have a bad time.

On 6/12/17 I booked these flights
10/28/17 flight #248 departing 8:30P , arriving 10:53P
11/4/17 flight #1535 departing 4:55P, arriving 7:10P

on 7/2/17 AA changed my flights and notified me by e-mail
10/28/17 flight #1112 departing 8:15A , arriving 2:09P
11/3/17 flight #1593 departing 11:55P, arriving 5:41A next day

on 7/5 called in and told them NO red-eyes and changed my flights and "waived fees", but resulting in an extra night of lodging costs
10/28/17 flight #1112 departing 8:15A , arriving 2:09P
11/6/17 flight #1535 departing 4:55P, arriving 7:10P

on 8/6/17 AA changed my flights and NO NOTIFICATION
10/28/17 flight #1112 departing 8:15A , arriving 2:09P
11/5/17 flight #2407 departing 12:55A, arriving 5:47A

On 10/18/17
I went to double check my calendar was updated with the correct flight numbers and got real confused when I clicked to open the itinerary on AA.com. Called in and spent 75 minutes on the phone resulting in them basically telling me I can change the 4 hour non-stop to a couple different 8-10 hour connecting flights and told them to get fawked. Normally I wouldn't give a fuck about red-eyes but you add in a 28 month old and things change.

So the extra night of lodging was for the 5th, now that night has been paid for $150-200 or so? and won't be using it.

She said open a case with the department of transportation, which then gets routed to the AA customer service.

never again.

I’m in that boat. They’re our preferred airline at work and I fly about 25,000 miles a year - light business miles - and I haven’t had any big problems. In fact, they’ve been super accommodating with flight changes. When there are delays or changes, because shit happens, they’ve made it up with big points to my rewards.

Midway is not in the ideal location and why most will hate on it, but I haven't had any problems what so ever (outside of weather) flying SWA around 4-5x a year. I've had mind blowing fuckery with this airline in Jan with an international flight and now this upcoming trip.

So your flights were never delayed at ORD? I can only say that a small % was delayed out of MDW vs almost every flight being delayed out of ORD.

My work uses United. Almost every flight is overbooked but they don't change flights on me. Flying to Europe on Sunday so I will hopefully rack up some more miles.

well scheduled flight times and actual flight times are logged.. I wonder if any websites present that data.. We all have our own experiences and will be biased but I would like to see the data as that is reality.

i think what's tough though too is that it still wouldn't be apples to apples, some carriers only go some places, and that could skew the data. Like I can't get to northern wyoming/billings without united from around here, and typically i get SCREWED flying out there.

but there are no other options...

I agree with all airlines suck. I mostly fly United. Id do Southwest but MDW sucks. As far as flight delays as long as the plane pushes back from the gate it has departed ontime. Even if it sits on the tarmac for 45 min before takeoff.

A friend is was going to Puerto Rico around Christmas time. She is currently trying to get her money back from United. The vacation home her group booked refunded her money because the house will be in no condition to stay in come that come. Most of the islands have no power. San Juan airport is CLOSED except for relief flights. United be like nah we keeping your money.

Why does midway suck? because how far you are? knowing how to use the right pedal I've made it plenty of times 45-55 minutes.

I don't think the airport itself sucks, awesome parking for $15/day, shuttle buses coming every 15 min and your through the security line in generally less than 5-7 minutes, then no more than 5 minutes to basically any one gate. Then its very rare for flight delays, not being as busy as ORD. ORD is the opposite, very rare to have an on-time.

I would admit i'm biased given almost every flight is free and now on year 2 with a free companion pass, but I'm trying to disregard that to see how people are swinging off ORD and ORD airlines..

SWA has never once changed a flight, let alone changed the fucking day your flying and why my mind is blown with AA.

United is by far the worst. The layout at O'Hare sucks. And they always seem to land, then drive around for a ˝ hour before arriving at the gate. American sucks too.

And all the stupid add on fees....
Charges for checked bags,
so everyone now uses carry-ons,
so then overhead fills up before the plane is full,
so now they charge extra to let on earlier to you get a spot for your luggage.

Likeing Southwest more and more.

yup and don't give a fuck honestly..

The only way I can see people dealing with all that ORD bullshit is they are close to ORD, and even living next to ORD I probably still wouldn't do it.

About 10 years ago I flew Spirit because I found a ~$180 flight to Vegas. There can be nothing worse than that pile of shit airline. First and last time I ever flew a "budget" airline.

i wasn't talking to you, i was saying about the person complaining about landing and driving.

the one runway is like a mile from the gate i think.


you couldn't pay me to drive to midway, from up here it's just too far, id rather fly out of ohare all day long, or rockford or madison, or milwaukee.

agreed, just saying its not an excuse for ORD, if anything I don't think United is a bad airline if you remove all the ORD aspects that mostly contribute to the delays at the gateways, the delays trying to taxi out, the delays before you can taxi in etc.

Fuck...ours was overbooked, and I'd never seen such tight seat spacing on a plane before. I said fuck it and paid to upgrade to first class on the way home.

Crazy. I fly AA about 99.5% of my flights. I also fly pretty much every other week, if not more. I've never had that problem with them.

I’ve flown Alaska exclusively for over ten years, even when I didn’t live in Alaska. I can only remember being bumped off once and that was my decision. No delays and amazing service. And they keep adding more and more destinations.

I’m telling you - Alaska Airlines is the way to go.

This is very much related to where you are flying. My problem is AA very likely did this because they couldn't jam the flight full and thus profit more. I have flown 1/2 empty flights many times on other airlines, it comes with the territory. AA has chosen to fuck people over so it'll just be a matter of time for them.
