So my flight home was originally supposed to leave Orlando at 3:50 PM.

We are now sitting on the runway and have been told that our next update on status will be at 6 PM. Not that we’ll be leaving at 6 PM…but next time we even hear anything. And even once we are wheels up, due to a reroute, our flight will be at least 40 minutes longer than normal.

I foolishly did not pick up any snacks at the airport, and even once we take off the only food that American has available will be a cookie, a small bag of nuts, or a small bag of chips…

…for $3 each.

This airline sucks. I know it’s not their fault we are delayed, but this food baloney is for the birds. Why even bother flying a more “premier” airline like American if the experience is sub-par.

I usually fly United and I like them a lot better. Sure, they charge you for food, but at least it’s more than just a stupid cookie.

  1. They are all getting really sucky! Even United. One of them (United, or US Airways, or Continental…I can’t remember which) is going to start charging $2 for sodas! That better be a damn big soda!!
