Up In The Air / Re: Airline Compensation Master Thread
« on: November 19, 2018, 09:31:24 AM »

I would like it if someone can tell me what my rights were regarding compensation for the following situation.
Note: I was traveling with my wife and 5 children, ages 12,10,7, and 3.5 twins

We had a 12pm flight from Chicago to JFK that got cancelled because of weather.
They automatically put us on a 430 PM flight to La Guardia (fyi, I specifically did NOT want to fly to La Guardia when I booked my flights. I paid extra for JFK because LGA is not an easy airport to deal with) but put us on standby flight 130 going to LGA. They put all 6 of our luggages on that stand by flight, saying worse case, if there's no room for us on the 130, at least we have seats on the 430 and our luggages will just wait for us for 3 hours in LGA.

When we tried getting on the flight, everyone refused to take us on since we were 7 people and we would not be sitting together. They didn't let us split up our seats (within the plane) because we had little children. So they adviced us to just stick it out until 430 which was OK with us. We didn't care too much.

Now we're on the 430 flight. 10 minutes before arrival, the Pilot says we're not able to land in LGA and we're landing in JFK (our original destination!!!!!) the problem is - OUR LUGGAGE was at LGA from the 130 standby flight!! Of course we were stuck on the plan for 2 hours because we didn't have a terminal or crew to bring the plane in.. by this time, it was 10pm

We went to baggage claim hoping for them to deliver our luggage to my dad's car, since he was waiting for us in LGA. They told us it's not possible because our luggage was in Boston since the 130 flight got diverted there. It was 12 am and they told us we'd get our luggage delivered the next day. We got an email saying they located our luggage and it would arrive Fri around 1pm. It came Shabbos night, 11 pm...

What is American Airlines suppose to give us, legally? We don't know what to ask for. I asked them for compensation, they said it was the "act of Gd" and they couldn't give us anything.

I booked the tickets on Sapphire Pref Card, they told me we'd get $100 per luggage per day for whatever American Airline doesn't pay.

Please advise. Thanks
As was said in the other thread, there are no passanger "rights" in the US as it relates to this story.

Your CC insurance will hopefully help.

Any feedback on the Protea Sea Point hotel? Thinking of doing the stay 5 for 4 nights option or a 7 day cert. Think @Yehoshua stayed there?
Nothing fancy, just your typical 3* hotel.

My mistake. I meant Belz, it doesn't have Aurbach, that was the place next to it before it shut down.

Good point, I've been looking at the excursionist perk so much that I completely forgot about this!
That's exactly what I did. Same thing for the return I got CPT-JNB tagged on.

It's back for the first time in months. Have not checked every day, only every few days.

Las Vegas to LA tomorrow and other west coast hops.
They've had deals every few days. Just posted at different times than before.

Looks like you used up all the points for today. 2 x 0 here.

Don't think this had anything to do with it but I will put it out there anyway. I changed IP for each account.
This is Marriott. They don't know their own IP.

Are there any restaurants / take out open until 11-12 at night?
Not necessarily a "restaurant", but Doghouse.

For some reason the cash option went up to 913MM.

Doesn't change the fact that that's the name of the aircraft \_(ツ)_/.
I think I can get Dan to agree to this if you're willing to concede the heliports.

Is revenue better or mileage?
Depends on the fare class, but generally mileage.
