First LGA for terminal chaos. Solution - fly to EWR.
Then YYZ for runway fun. Solution - connect through ORD for onward instead.
And now SFO for more runway fun? Solution - fly into SJC since I'm going to the Valley anyway.

My next 6 weeks of business travel gets more complicated by the minute.

Good luck Cow!

Icing on the cake:
Add LAX and you get the combo meal - runway constructions AND terminal moves by AC and other airlines.

Maybe there should be an EYW 2017 badge for travel through three or more airports in a state of disassembly. A shovel and pick icon I think.

LAX on Sunday had no flight delays nor hiccups due to runway construction...had it yet begun?

Would it be easier to list out the airports that functioning correctly. Which, at no point in time includes LGA or EWR as far as I can tell.

Since my original thread an OP while in LAX on March 6

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/air-c...-6-2017-a.html

I'll assume time of day / number of flights will either slow things down dramatically as it did with my AC 791s, one of which was more than an hour late and captain advised that we were to wait at point of origin by LAX ATC.

Damn. I remember doing mileage runs out of SFO for AC "with" you (we had some segments in common).

I'm doing 5 segments this weekend starting and ending at SFO, but not for a MR!

I'm going to SFO through YYZ in 10 days. Ugh.

Maybe I should rebook through ORD to OAK :-/

And here we have the FlightAware Misery Map for right now (on May 4).
Canadian airports are not included but you get the idea.

Ugh travel waiver has been posted for the 6th and 7th.

Let's see what the rebooking tool offers.

Edit: It says I'm not eligible
