AA Catering Cart Incident at O'Hare 30 Sep 2019

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Props to the ramp crew (except maybe not the caterer).

The guy who stopped it from hitting the plane should be rewarded.

That catering cart represents the current state of the airline.

If I could watch this in person every time I had a 4-hr delay, I might have forgiven AA!

The Weather Channel was showing clips of this all night. They weren't attributing it to a specific airline though. I didn't know it was an AA cart until coming on Flyertalk this morning. Absolutely Hilarious.

It seems I'm the minority opinion, but to me it clearly hit the nose gear door on the last circle. I hope they grounded it until the maintenance check was done.

It looked like it was heading right towards the nose cone which houses expensive navigation equipment. Plus you have to consider the lost revenue while the aircraft is being repaired, costs to reroute pax, etc. It all adds up pretty quickly.

I'm sure there were multiple complaints about lack of a PDB on board that flight

Just a heads up. Only thing in the nose cone is the radar. No expensive navigation related equipment at all.

Get your point though...
