If your name is Zeimer, I’d strongly advise you NOT to fly American Airlines this week.
First, my twin brother’s flight on American from SFO to Athens this coming Friday was cancelled. Though it’s the height of the summer travel season and it seems like everyone and his brother (including mine) is going to Europe, he was able to get another flight. The bad news? It lands in Athens at 225 am the day after he wanted to get there.
Second, my flight Wednesday am from SFO to JFK was cancelled, too. My wife, daughter and I then spent eight hours waiting in lines to see tickets agents at American and Delta, where Delta was able to find us a seat – tomorrow.
So here we are, stuck at a no name hotel near SFO. We could have driven home and spent tonight in our own beds, But our flight is at 645am and we still need seat assignments, so it’s better to sleep nearby and get up at 345 am to catch an early shuttle to Delta, instead of sleeping at home and getting up at 245 am.
So if your name’s Zeimer, fly carefully and good luck getting on an American flight this week. But if you’re not of Austrian descent like us, we’d like to hear about your summer bummer. Please comment below…
