I checked the screens for my flight to Marion. It was delayed until 8:30pm. Mad as hell, as I wanted to GET HOME!!! I proceeded to gate B-10. There were four more flights before the Marion flight that was leaving from Gate B-10. I checked in and asked why it was delayed. The reply, the crew was stuck in Springfield, Mo. OK
then I thought, I grabbed a seat and waited. 8:30pm comes by and nothing yet. I strike up a conversation with an SIU student. Then I heard an announcement. “Ladies and gentlemen, flight 5913 to Marion, has been canceled” Now here I am thinking..”shit, shit shit shit and oh yeah SHIT!!”. Now how the hell am I gonna get home now I thought!! The agent told me to go to the customer service desk in the C concourse. So Myself, and 2 other ladies plus some 2 guys who went to SIU and an older woman all walked down to the C concourse to the desk, and we all mentioned our problem. We were all offered a hotel and food voucher and a ticket on the next flight home to Marion, which was leaving at 10:46am the next day. Myslef and the SIU students declined as we all had school the next day. I said there are NO flights to ANYWHERE?? The agent said No, so I paged my dad to let him know what happened. His reply” I will come get you”. Isn’t he an awesome dad for doing that?? Driving all the way up to STL
(2 hour drive each way…)and then coming to pick me up and then driving all the way back?!?! So then I walked back to the gate and canceled my flight for the next day and returned the hotel voucher and food. I asked for a refund for the STL
-MWA flight which was 56 dollars. I then went out and waited two more hours for my dad, and then met him and gave hugs and then drove home….
::sigh:: didn’t get home until 1:00am….
NEVER AGAIN FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES!!! YOUR CREW MAY NOT SHOW UP
