American Airline Hell ! 900 Flights Cancelled

On my return from Boston last week, I got to see first hand what the American Airline catastrophe looked like. Last week American Airlines canceled 900 flights leaving over 100,000 people stranded across the U.S. At my conference, several people had flown American to Boston and were wondering how they were going to get home.

I arrived at Boston to come home on United, and on my way to the ticket counter I looked over and saw all the people waiting in line at the American Airline counter to be re-booked because 150 almost all flights from Boston were canceled that day. There are times I really don't like United but on this day I was thankful I was flying on them. There must have been 1,000 people waiting in line at the AA counter at Logan.

Oh I HATE Flight Cancellations! I've met twice and I couldn't stop swearing. But I wouldn't mind if a major airline cancels its flights because I got complimentary hotel stay (Hyatt) and a USD25 breakfast voucher!!
But when it's a budget airline.. no one gives a damn. I couldn't even claim my refund back due to the lousy system on Ryanair. Oops. Did I say that out loud? :P

Traveling every week I just kind of expect it now. U.S. airlines are so screwed up your always lucky if you get to where your going on time, you just have to make the best of it.
