Layover in Chicago and they cancelled my flight. Next flight at 8am.


Jan 10, 2016, 4:45 PM

Not giving us anything toward a hotel room or anything. Not to mention my reservations in Vegas. Then we have the four hour drive to the stadium. The drive would be 26 hours from here.... The same distance from where we started

Noted. However, it's not the weather. The plane had maintenance issues. I would think they would have one that could be flown here for the passengers

What airport in Chicago? If at O'Hare, plenty of hotels around it and Midway has a few, but be careful.around Midway.

Yes O'Hare. But they're not giving us anything for taxi and hotel. We are going to cut it close driving from Vegas where'd we get there

If near Midway, you can easily take the train downtown


Jan 10, 2016, 5:51 PM

Probably best would be to stay on the south side of downtown (south loop). Another option would be staying in Hyde Park, which is just a bit east and where UChicago is.

Man i hate hearing that. I used to be an account manager for Amex travel and you are due concessions. If it is not weather related you need to get something. Did you book directly through airline?

We were told that our place has maintenance issues in Oakland. I'm thinking that planes were moved around and we were the ones at the bottom of the food chain. It was spirit flight NK 762

Nice detective work bro. We just booked them. Two tickets ended up $168. At $99 for one, the math didn't add up but I didn't ask questions. The flight has been delayed until 11. Some other tigers leaving around 5:30 on AA paid $1600...

Make sure they refund you for the cancelled flight. Maintenance is their problem.

Jan 10, 2016, 7:41 PM

Thanks. I'm sure some people have experience with it. Idk of its a negotiation. The biggest issue is that we lost the evening in Vegas, which is out first time going. Oh well, at the end of the day the only thing that matters is beating bama. Go tigers!

A real fan would sneak on to another plane


Jan 10, 2016, 6:08 PM

and then mid flight bust up into the cockpit and POLITELY demand that they drop you off in Vegas.
Problem solved.

I never connect in Chicago if I can help it...at least 50% of the time I end up with a significant delay or canceled flight. Not sure what the deal is, but it never fails. I understand this doesn't help you at this point...just maybe file this away for future reference.
