AA Delays At ORD Nov. 22

Wed Nov 24, 2004 4:14 am

What was up with AA at O'Hare yesterday? Major parts of their traffic system seem to be majorly delayed. Or is a one to two hour delay just pretty normal for them?

It's not uncommon to wait 2 hrs on the runway to take off at ORD. My last flight with AA at ORD, was AUS-ORD-BRU and took almost 2 hours to get in the air...major bummer.  Sad

Check the weather in Texas - near IAH and DFW. It was abyssmal yesterday. What most folks can't seem to grasp is that because it's clear and sunny at ORD it might be just plane (  Smile ) shitty at DFW . . . and that's where your inbound a/c is sitting.

Always best to fly first thing in the day . . .

The last time I was connecting through ORD was May 03, so over a year now. I miss the DFW connections more, so I'll tolerate ORD.
