I believe my letter (below) to American Airlines speaks for itself.
Dear American Airlines:
I am writing to express my extreme dissatisfaction with my most recent flying experience while attempting a return home to
Due to problems originating in
When we finally landed in
The earliest available connection into DC (IAD) left at 11:44am the following day (flight 4048). After waiting for this flight, watching its departure time come and go, we were informed the flight would be canceled due to mechanical problems.
Following this bad news, I was moved to yet another flight, this time going to DCA, which was due to depart at 1:13pm (flight 4203). By 3pm, the pilots had not yet arrived making this flight significantly late. At 3:30pm, this flight too was canceled due to mechanical problems.
After this, I was sent to
While I understand weather problems are beyond the control of American Airlines, bad service, multiple mechanical problems and late pilots are not. Indeed, because of these problems I have missed a full day of work, been forced to spend over $300 in lodging and other transportation costs, and have been away from my family longer than needed.
Recently, I purchased 8 separate round trip tickets on American Airlines because of my past positive experiences. I am now beginning to regret that decision. As a former Gold level AAdvantage member, I was looking forward to my future 8 flights which would again put me at AAdvantage gold status.
In an attempt to seek relief from this situation, I am asking that you please take steps to restore my faith and trust in your airline. Please contact me at the address below with your response.

Here we sit, again, in St. Louis of all places. This time weather in DC keeping me from achieving my quest to get home within 24 hours. Left KC 6 hours late yesterday, stayed overnight in Chicago, had 2 flights cancelled on me before being sent here.
