Executive summary:

DFW weather appears to have some surprises in store for us as the Memorial Day week end approaches.

France continues with multiple strikes. Please use the link to AA Travel Alerts in the wikipost to check current alerts and travel policy.

LaGuardia Parking

The parking garage known as P2 fronting Terminal B (Central Terminal) will be closed on July 8 in connection with the rehabilitation program. The LT open air lot next to it (to the west) has been closed and is not an alternative. AA uses concourse C and D in this terminal for legacy AA flights such as DFW, ORD, MIA. AA also uses Terminal C (the old USAir terminal) for shuttle flights to BOS and DCA and other smaller pre-merger USAir cities.

Parking will be a huge issue for the next few years - think cab/car service, public transit or EWR or JFK as alternatives or making your flight will be challenging. The LGA link of the announcement is --> http://laguardiaairport.com/getting-to-from/parking/

AA IRROPS Challenge (help for DFW-GRU misconnect)

Flight from TYR slid 2.5 hrs due to bird strike and it looks like I will misconnect.

Confirmed in J with SWU on AA963.

Due to GRU tomorrow morning.

Anyone got any ideas?

You could ask to be rerouted via LIM on the 10:20 PM flight; however, that won't get you into GRU until the afternoon. If that's not acceptable, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

Driving to DFW would have been your best bet. Now that the opportunity has passed, there's no way you're making your connection.

You'd never make the Lima flight either.

Your earliest arrive to GRU is to route DFW-MIA-GRU and you'll get to GRU at 0515.

Honestly, I'd just take the 24 wait and fly DFW-GRU tomorrow at 2120, which puts you in GRU a day late a 0925.

FWIW, I think in the future if this is an important trip (As opposed to leisure with no rigid timetable) I'd plan to fly from DFW direct in the first place. I have seen on occasion where starting in TYR can save you a little money, but seems like just doing the DFW-GRU would be easier, and can't honestly take much more time to drive to DFW than to fly...

Thanks for your help! We are currently sitting in our free Super 8 hotel room close to DFW. At least we got meal vouchers.

Sorry for the brevity. I was a little flustered at the time.

Made it to DFW at 2100. The D0 departure mantra hurt us because the flight was closed early and we were already offloaded. If I hadn't taken two wrong turns and found out about the issue earlier I think that we would have made it (probably arrived around 2000).

You called my bluff, lol. It was a leisure trip, and I did it to save money. I was curious as to how long it would take me to get down to Tyler. Apparently UA pulled out 3-4 months ago. Lesson learned.

Last summer I was flying to LHR and starting at TYR was $300 cheaper for a while. Eventually Dfw-LHR came down though.

Since its leisure I guess nbd on the missed day, enjoy Brazil.

We ended up pushing everything 24 hours. I need to look at my Citi AA Visa insurance and see what's covered cost wise.

Thanks. It would have been nice to have the extra day but oh well. We went to the CR Smith Museum instead.

DFW ramp is currently shut down due to lightning. There was a long standby list for my flight from flights being cancelled yesterday and this morning. We are currently sitting on the plane so we will be ready to go once the ramp reopens.

Most Outrageous Stranding at DFW

I'm just trying to get a sense of how bad my situation is compared to the average stranding. I'm Platinum, on a paid FRA-DFW-BHM. D fare transatlantic with First on the domestic segment, used miles to upgrade to old first because the old business looked a little sketchy to me.

I had a 90 minute delay or so but arrived in DFW with plenty of time to connect. There are 4 nonstops per day from DFW-BHM plus, being a hub, you could go through MIA, CLT, whatever. I could fly to ATL and rent a car. Nothing is working. I arrived at 2 PM Sunday and I'm still here, earliest possible flight out is Tuesday at 10:30 AM. I've been moved to flights which then had rolling delays, multiple cancellations, gate changed 10 times in 2 hours, you name it. Currently booked in coach on the second flight out Tuesday. For reasons that should be obvious, I'm starting to think this a bad deal. I'm out $800 for two nights at the tired Hyatts (one night at each).

I guess my question is, if this is how Platinum customers on a paid first class ticket get treated, what do they do to the rest of the world?
