With The Good…Comes The Bad!

You’ve seen today my post on my New Hampshire Primary experience.   It was a great trip.

Then there was the journey home.

I was supposed to fly American Airlines from Manchester to Philadelphia to Newark with the first flight leaving at 5:58 p.m. Wednesday (2/10).   That time got pushed back a couple of hours because of — I’m told — a scheduling snafu.

As I understand it, our Manchester plane was re-routed to Charlotte from Philly…and had to make a return flight to Philadelphia before finally showing up to get us.

Not much brotherly love here.

Our plane did finally arrive…and to American’s credit..they got us to Philly in puh-lenty of time to catch my connection to Newark.

That didn’t matter.

My 2nd plane — American Airlines again — arrived a little late and offloaded its passengers..and flight crew.


We had no crew for the Newark trip.  Our scheduled 10:50 p.m. flight to Newark Liberty International Airport was then rescheduled to leave at 12:30 a.m. Thursday (My first ever flight spanning two days!  Yay, me!).


Dear American Airlines…  YOU MUST DO A HELL OF A LOT BETTER!!!

I will revert back to the political theme of my trip.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham — when asked about voters making a GOP choice for president between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz — said that was like making a choice of “being shot or poisoned.”  In essence, he was saying — What does it matter?

I’ve flown both American Airlines..and US Airways in my lifetime — and had awful experiences on both.  Those two companies merged last year.  Here’s my question: If one airline is “being shot” and the other “poisoned”…

What does that make the “new” American Airlines?

For the record..

Arrived at Manchester Airport at 2:56 p.m.  Wednesday, February 10

Walked through my front door in New Jersey at 2:04 a.m Thursday, February 11.

Oy vey!
