American Airlines Sucks

I had a reservation on American Airlines:

          Los Angeles New York Boston Los Angeles

While in New York I found that I could drive to Boston with friends. I called American hoping for at least some miles in exchange for giving them an extra seat to sell. (This was during the Christmas rush.) Instead they told me that if I didn't pay them more money they would cancel my return flight to Los Angeles.

After numerous interchanges with their customer service representatives, I found that apparently the customer is always wrong. In the twisted world of American Airlines relinquishing a leg was an "itinerary change"—and they insisted that my ticket required me to pay extra for any "itinerary change."

In the future I will do my best never to fly American Airlines again.

I guess I'm not alone in feeling this way about American Airlines. Here are a few of the images I found after a quick search for American Airlines Images. (Click the image to go to the page where the image was found.)

That is true. I've never flown on American, but I have flown on U. S. Air, their merger partner. I've only heard the stories about them. For national air travel, fly JetBlue. For national and international, choose United. I know they say that United has old planes and bad service, but really, it's like every other airline. (That's suitable for a good travel!)
