I was wondering if someone could help me on this.
I will be on AA flt 295 (MIA-ORD) on the 20th of May and onwards to LHR on flt 46.

Before i go on any trip, i like to check the reliability of certain flights to see how well they will do and so that i dont have to rush to get my onward connection.
I have been watching AA 295 for a week now and it always seems to be leaving late from MIA. Ok it normally is just around 10 mins late but today it was 2 hours late and if this happens on the 20th I will miss my connection in ORD.

I was wondering if someone could help me on why this flight seems to be late leaving MIA.
flt 295 is a 763 and I think that this flight actually comes from ORD and seems to always leave on time and arrive on time (normally early!) so why does this flight seem to always get caught being late!
Are the 763s that bad for tech reasons or are AA not allowing enough time to turn her around?

Can't help you with that, but for MANY years, AA295 was the 7am LGA-DFW on DC-10's, later 767's and 757's!

I don't think you have need to worry.

Here's what happened on 295 since 4MAY (the earliest date I can check):

295 is a scheduled departure of 1600 out of MIA and an arrival of 1820 in ORD.

Date Dep Time Dep Delay Act ARR Delay Reason

4MAY 1622 22 min 1834 hold for 20 connecting pax
5MAY 1636 36 min 1905 loading cargo
6MAY 1606 06 min 1842 loading cargo
7MAY 1607 07 min 1821 ATC flow control ORD
8MAY 1601 01 min 1805 Ramp disconnect of AC hose
9MAY 1607 07 min 1820 Ramp closed due lightning in MIA
10MAY 1608 08 min 1830 Catering delay waiting for supp meals
11MAY 1757 117 min ?? ATC flow control ORD


Since flight 46 leaves Chicago at 2015, the only day you would have risked misconnecting is today (although with that kind of a ATC arrival delay at ORD, it wouldn't surprise me if 46 gets delayed as well).

I don't know why you are connecting thru ORD when MIA has a nonstop to LHR, but I am sure you have a good reason. Here is a bit of advice: if it looks like 295 is going to be significantly delayed (enough that it risks a misconnect) talk to the agent about rerouting you on the nonstop. It does have seats available.

Depending on if you have checked bags and many other factors, the agent may be able to shift you to the nonstop in order to keep you from misconnecting in ORD. Then again, they may not do it, but it is at least worth a try.

Good luck!!

I almost forgot....in addition to the above, even if you are on 295 and it is late, AND you misconnect to 46, you are still not sunk!

AA98 leaves ORD at 2150 and arrives LHR at 1130. So if you miss 46, they will probably put you on 98.

I think you can relax!

Well this is a milage ticket so i go anyway that they send me! Not that Im bothered as its another aircraft to fly on!
Also i will have one checked bag and I know its hard when you have a bag to change flights (not impossible as i have had to do it before!)
No i knew there was another flight to LHR from ORD also i just would rather get on my flight as I know i have a window seat and if i miss i probably will lose it!
