Looks like another night in St Maartin for us. They have us on same itinerary for tomorrow but no FC seats. Will be going to PJIA to see about other options when AA opens at 11:30.

I’m sure cancellation is state side, not Sxm side, as that flight is pretty routine.

Good luck, Scuba. We always think an extra day or so on island sounds good. That is, until it actually happens and you have to deal with the inconveniences. Hope it works out to your ultimate satisfaction.🙂🙂


Respectfully,

Good luck Scuba!!!

We finally got to SXM yesterday after the comedy of errors. I will post my extended epistle later.

Our initial flight out of Nashville via Miami on AA was cancelled. A fantastic phone agent named Ronnie got us rebooked via Charlotte. We had seats for Nashville to Charlotte and the pilot flew that plane like he stole it. We were 45 mins early!! We initially had no seat assignment on the CLT to SXM flight as Ronnie couldn't make the system assign us seats. We had to wait until we got to the airport. Well we went from spending the big bucks for spacious seats to getting the absolute worst seats on the plane. 4 hours in a seat AA should be ashamed to have on their planes. That was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever been in and I have been on some small plane, we travelled across N Arizona in a de Havilland Twin Otter prop that should be labeled as an amusement park ride and it was more comfortable!! And no refund from AA as they got us here. I guess they could have stowed us in the hold or strapped us to a wing and said the same. Oh well, at least we are here installed at Orient sipping Nespresso and the man is just off on a pastry hunt. Hoping for a beach day. Can't whine.... well, too much.😁

MIA had 135 cancelled flights yesterday and today is starting to look the same. As of 6am there were already 40 departures cancelled

Edit: 10a to SXM cancelled but 1pm is listed as delayed a bit....might have hope with that one

I believe it. The line at the AA help desk in Charlotte was about 50 people deep yesterday when we passed by. Just glad we made it to SXM regardless.

We saw those lines also yesterday, glad we weren’t in one of them. But weren’t you glad that your pilot had 35 years of service! Felt like we were in safe hands.

Yes. That was cool. And that was one full flight so we felt fortunate to get seats just wish they had recline at least.

Guessing you still have your place since check out is usually on a Saturday, if so that is a good deal. Good luck, airlines are already stretched thin and then when you add weather or other issues beyond control it sure makes a mess.


I prefer the Isle seat

boucharda--yes, as of now, the second flight is still listed to leave around 1 PM, which if so, they should be boarding already. Perhaps Scuba can get on the return of that flight, IF it leaves Miami.

Exactly Carol. The more I am reading the more thankful I am. But Ronnie at AA call center was the best most helpful airline phone staff we have ever encountered. We left a glowing review for him via voicemail.

After waiting in line at AA in PJIA all they could tell us is we are booked on tomorrow's flight with same itinerary as today's. But can't get seat assigned till tomorrow's check-in. Yesterday's covid test will still be ok. Incase flight tomorrow is canceled Flamingo will extend our stay in same room for tomorrow night. Fun times.

Sounds like Flamingo is taking care of you. Like hubbie says there are worse things than being stuck in paradise. Good flight scheduling vibes coming your way.

The adventures of hurricane season. Hope it is a mild one. Locals seem to think it will be from what we have been told. Fingers crossed.

our flight from Houston to Miami was cancelled in the middle of the night. AA rebooked us through Charlotte on Friday and will get to SXM, in theory, Saturday at 1. this screw up by AA is going to cost me a lot of money. I'm lucking the text woke me up at 3:30 or I not sure I would have made the Charlotte layover.

AA said there was no way I could get to MIA today. She checked other airline. American has limited flights our of Houston. Very irritating. Quick question, do I need to do another EHAS for this flight? I sent St. Martin an e-mail asking early this morning, but no response yet
