Have them put you on the 1030pm DL flight out of JFK? (Or use 20K DL)

Fly on the 705pm AA flight LGA-CLE and rent a car one-way?

Just got off the phone with someone who was supposed to fly out of LGA-YYZ, rebooked to JFK, cancelled too, rebooked out of EWR delayed to 2 hours. JFK may not be any better. 
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

My original flight was US Airways.

If I can get the Delta out of JFK would be great but a) will JFK be any better? b) even if it is, how do I get them to put me on that flight? (I don't have skymiles right now because I used them all up on the South Africa trip that I just got back from today.)

Hate to say this, but easiest way is at airport...

Phone lines are gonna be jammed now, and even if you got through, they're not as inclined to help you as they are at airport, IME.

Ask someone at the airport to move you to DL. Come out with a good reason why you need to be there, they can do anything if they want to.
Don't have any AMEX points handy if they won't?

So I should go to JFK? And speak to whom? US Airways or Delta? (Does US even have a desk at JFK?)

AA 705pm LGA-CLE is showing on time.
One-way rental from CLE to PIT/waterfront is $43 all in.

You would need to talk to US to rebook you.  They do fly to JFK.

GMaps is saying 35 minutes via the Jackie.

Best bet is prob JFK, but find 20K AMEX in case US won't move you.

I don't even have a car. I'd have to call a car service. Plus I have baggage to check. Too tight. Thanks so much though! What's the next best plan?
