The payments under the EU rules are almost absurdly generous. A transatlantic delay of 4 hours or more is worth 600 euros! (Personally, with that kind of payment, I'd PREFER such a delay most times). For non-EU airlines, these payments only apply to flights LEAVING the EU. Mechanicals are not excluded, but "crew strikes" are. Not sure what happens if the airline claims mechanic work slowdown.

Anyone else get caught in the rash of ORD weather cancellations on Memorial Day (Monday May 27th)? Total meltdown today and AA just outright canceled a bunch of flights. Why don't they run flights with 4-6+ hour delays instead of telling everyone that they need to stay in Chicago for two days to take a 3 stop flight home in a middle seat on an Oasis torture tube?

The tarmac delay fines and changes to crew duty rules after the Buffalo crash played a large part in beginning this trend. Now US carriers have discovered it is much easier to just cancel everything and reset the operation to operate normally tomorrow after severe weather occurs.

According to someone who was supposed to be on AA754 on Sunday night:

Everyone shows up at gate. Shows CDG as destination, plane is there, luggage is loaded... Then some new information is given: Because of mechanical problems, flight is cancelled.

Okay. Then gate info switches over to DUB as destination. My informant gets booked to CDG via DUB, and goes out on the same plane that had been waiting there.

So some choice seems to have been made to scrub the CDG flight and use that plane for DUB. Not saying it was wrong. Not saying I know anything more than that. Just saying that this is what seems to have happened. In which case, I return to my original comment, that this does not instill confidence in buying tickets for this flight (AA754).

(There is also something I can't quite piece together in this... AA754 is scheduled into CDG at 10:40am these days, and AA755 back to PHL at 10:40am also. That would be quick turnaround at, say, LEX, so clearly it is not the same plane. I haven't done due diligence here, but PHL and CLT are the only 332 hubs, so I am assuming that AA786 [hope I have the number right] CLT-CDG is going back as AA755 CDG-PHL, and AA754 PHL-CDG [when it flies] is going back as AA787 CDG-CLT. Yet both days when AA754 was cancelled, AA755 was cancelled, too, so in addition to DUB being privileged over CDG, CLT is being privileged over PHL. Not my choice to make, but someone's choice....)

It would seem that the mechanics union is targeting transatlantic flights but, if that's the case, they're going to get into a heck of a lot of legal trouble. Is it something else?
I know someone who was in J for the PHL-LHR flight on Sunday. She ended up flying next day on BA on the 747. But the overnight hotel was at a Days Inn (2.5 star motel about 10 miles down the road in a questionable neighborhood). Upon further inquiries about availability at the in-terminal Marriott at PHL, AA stated that the hotel was not available. She booked herself a room at the Marriott - probably saved herself some bedbugs, etc.
I wonder what kind of comps she could get after the fact. ??

Crew delay on the way to MCO, maintenance on the way back.

AA258 PHL-LIS cancelled due to crew at 9:24pm eastern - with departure at 9:30pm.
I assume this was 6 minutes prior to departure and not the day before. Please clarify if I am wrong.
If not, does AA not have a 757/767 pilot-flight attendant base at PHL with a 2 hour call out?

AA42 SKED 7:40pm Now DCSN 10pm due to maintenance ORD-VCE.

Double trouble to SA today...

5/30 AA945 DFW-SCL delayed 11.5h due to crew availability
5/30 AA953 JFK-EZE delayed 11h due to crew availability

Not having a backup crew at your main international hubs is frankly pathetic IMO.

In other news...

5/30 AA240 DFW-FCO delayed 3.5h due to MX
5/30 AA198 JFK-MXP delayed 5h due to MX
5/30 AA718 PHL-FCO delayed 4h due to MX/cabin servicing
5/30 AA42 ORD-VCE delayed 3.5h due to MX/pax medical needs
5/30 AA40 ORD-BCN delayed 3.5h and counting due to MX
5/30 AA98 ORD-LHR delayed 1h and counting due to MX

ORD seems to be a real problem. Every day you can count on at least 2-3 brand new 787s "breaking" and causing 3+ hour delays.

I suspect the EZE thing isn't AA's fault. There's been a nasty strike in Argentina that's halted air service. I suspect the SCL delay could be related.

Adding some more,
5/30 AA2738 ORD-DFW overnighted to 7am today 5/31, ~8.5 hours late
5/30 AA758 PHL-ATH almost 5 hours late before cancelled for MX
5/30 AA96 PHL-BUD 2 hours late MX
5/30 AA258 PHL-LIS 4.5 hours late MX
