There's so much more to Miami than what meets the eye. I'd take the bay area over this in terms of nature , heck most of the USA etc but beach wise, south Florida rocks.

Traffic has gotten worse but still way better than ny or CA.

It's much cheaper, restaurant wise etc.  But lately I feel like crown heights is crushing it. Brooklyn artisan bakehouse was 100 times better than Zak ever was.

I like Fll over Miami absolutely, say flying AA from Miami can be a huge schlep. But, FLL downside is that if a flight is delayed or cancelled, it's rough. So I'd fly JetBlue from fll or AA from Mia

Were you by the gate in advance of the requirement ? (10 or 15m before original such departure time)?

Not of the original 1:50pm departure. I got a notice about 1pm that it was delayed till 2:30. I got to the gate before 2:20. Flight had already been bearded, gate was open ...

AA MIA - LGA 1:50PM. checked in, checked bag. passed security was notified that flight delayed to 2:30, went to centurion, got a beer, came back. Now, the gate was open, gate agents were there, it was then that I found out that the flight was full. They had put people on standby on, myself and 3 others who were ticketed, were left out.

I also at this time around 2:21 got a notification that the flight was delayed till 3:30. Frankly, i'm not sure if I am in the wrong for going to the lounge, I can tell you the Gate was E11 and I had arrived to airport at D-20'sh.. Sure, I could have first gone to the gate and seen the situation..

Anyways, they said tough luck, they put me on 6:45 flight standby and ticketed 7:50. I got on 6:45 flight which was delayed, got to NY at 10:30

Should they compensate me?

They were exploring the cave when the rains came and flooded the entrance.

Yes I see

Why were the boys in the cave?

It appears they were taking part in a kind of initiation ritual, according to one of the rescue team members.

The boys left their backpacks and shoes “before wading in and trying to go to the end of the tunnel, sort of like an initiation for local young boys to… write your name on the wall and make it back”, said Ben Reymenants. “A flash flood because of sudden heavy rain locked them in.”

Reymenants said that the boys were stable and mentally fit, but weak owing to lack of food.
