Any rights? OSO / IROPS delays and reaccommodation

Hey!

So I’m on a fairly busy ticket (JER-LGW//LCY-JFK//LGA-ORD-PDX) and AA have a three hour delay on the LGA-ORD sector. Logged into the app and I’ve been rebooked on to tomorrows flight!

Went to ticketing and they’ve placed me on a later Chicago flight, but not in First... waitlist economy.


Do I get anything back for this? Seems a tad crap and I needed the TP’s!

How did you book the ticket? on BA, then you need to contact BA regarding this, on AA, then you need to contact AA.

If you fly in Y after paying for J or F, you should be able to get compensation, but it may not be as much as you'd like -- see here.

Do you need to go through ORD specifically? Did you ask about alternate F routings NYC-PDX?

Regarding TPs, you can try requesting original routing credit (ORC). That is routine for AAdvantage but I'm not sure how it works when crediting to BAEC.

For day-of-travel IROPS, it should be possible (and likely more expedient) to work on reroutings with the operating carrier (AA) regardless.

See if they will send you JFK-LAX-PDX. JFK-LAX is a a321T

Thanks everyone. I did it for the TP’s, so no major need to be in ORD. They put me on a later flight in F which is okay, but nearly 4 hours behind schedule.

I never thought of JFK-LAX... that would have been sweet!

I assume a 4 hour delay is nothing?

Thanks again all!

Welcome to July, summer heat and weather interruptions.

As you.can see from the FlightAware Misery Map, you have lots of company.

Because the trip started in JER is there an EC 261 claim to be made here?

No. If the delay had been on the LCY-JFK flight then it would’ve been yes, but because the delay was wholly on a domestic segment, EC 261 doesn’t apply.

also the delay looks to be caused by weather which is an exclusion from compensation under EU261
