I don't fly much. So Monday my flight out of Denver was delayed by rain. When I got into Chicago, my connecting flight had already left. What did American Airlines do for me? They made reservations at a hotel for me at what they claimed was a reduced rate and booked me out on the first flight today. I also lost the blond I sat next to on that flight and had the same connection. Didn't find her again until at the gate this morning. Should I avoid AA or flying in general? Going out last Thursday, I was stuck in Chicago for 4 1/2 hours due to delays. My brother had to wait the same 4 1/2 hours for me in Denver.
