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.
