Hershel's Bora Bora TR
« on: June 21, 2015, 04:57:26 AM »
I'll be IY"H departing from JFK-LAX early morning (June 21st)

I got a robo call from AA at 2AM that my flight was delayed due to bad weather, will be departing 2 hours late, Which means that I'd be arriving within an hour of my connection, the Air Tahiti Nui flight to PPT.

I immediately called AA and they were able to put me on an earlier flight which was not delayed, but they only had J available,  i was originally booked in F Revenue .

I took the offer, i couldn't afford to miss my connection.

Would i be able to get compensated by AA for the downgrade?

Will post more later......

If you paid for F and got J why shouldn't they refund you the difference?

Not sure if you are traveling alone or with a companion, but when traveling with a companion I like their J better

How long is the stop in PPT? Apparently departures area there for flight to BOB is small, cramped and has no A/C

Nope.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
