I am stuck in the Little Rock airport on this holiday weekend thanks to AA.
I was supposed to fly from Philly to DFW at 630 yesterday afternoon after a week of training. Flight was delayed an hour almost right off the bat. Ok I can deal with that.
We get up in the air and at 9 the captain says weather is bad in DFW were headed to Little Rock. Ok I can handle that.
When we land they tell us our plane has been without new navigation so they've been flying old school but now old school is broken so we can't fly the plane. Good news is there's a plane leaving Dallas right now and were going to take it right back to Dallas. Annoying but ok.
2 hours later they tell us the flight still hasn't taken off but as soon as it gets here were leaving. Ok great. Meanwhile the whole airport has been shut down since we landed at 9. No place to get any food or drink. They passed out a bottle of water and a granola bar and that was it.
Plane finally takes off after midnight coming from DFW. YAY were going home! NOPE! About 30 minutes after it lands he informs us that we have a plane and a crew to fly the plane home but AA and DFW airport authority told them he couldn't because the crews at DFW had been working too long, and they didn't have a place to put the plane. They then proceed to tell us the little rock river festival or something is in town the weekend and no hotels are vacant but if we found one we could apply for reimbursement.
Then the crew bolted and took the only 2 taxis outside to the hotel that doesn't exist. Well I found a room at the holiday inn but didnt have a way to get there, so I had to walk almost 2 miles.
Then I get back to the airport this morning and they try to charge me a change fee to move my flight and then charge me a new bag fee. But in the middle he says he can't move me and still tried to charge me a bag fee.
At this point I'm scheduled to leave at noon but I highly doubt that's going to leave on time.
Thanks AA for ruining my Saturday cook and putting weekend of to a horrible start. I guess I'll go buy a bagel and hope to get reimbursed for it.
Sorry. End rant.
