Maybe chadd can comment or those much more experienced than i , will comment/give advice.
we are ticketed to leave aruba on AA to miami to tampa late afternoon on Thursday.
the storm is slated to possibly hit MIA at the time we would be landing.
questions? how far out does AA cancel their flights? i was hoping it'd be cancelled by now so i could make a transfer to another flight , another day without huge fees and ticket increase pricing.
i just got back from aruba airport to inquire about switching our flights and leaving tomorrow or wednesday instead.
the agent told us it would be a change fee of $100something each and a 1 way ticket price of almost $1000 each 1st class only available(cheaper seats are showing on AA website, but even those are not affordable and gate agent says not available)
so we wait.
and LaCabana tells us that if we need to stay an extra night or 2, there is no availability. (Venezuela school vacation)
we have trip insurance and i suspect we will have to use it.
the worry of my house in fla, pets, pet sitter having other commitments beginning on saturday ...........argh!
willing to hear suggestions or comments thx
