My husband was supposed to leave for DCA at 5pm. His flight pushed back, but then there was a stop put on flights going to DCA. So they sat out there.
I last spoke to him at 5:45 then got caught up in work items. By 6:00, I couldn’t contact him and figured he departed.
When I pulled up US Airway’s website, it said he departed at 5:00 and was landing at 6:20pm. This was impossible, unless they’ve really made huge advances in air travel that I missed.
I wasn’t sure what to do and Tiff told me to check out the American Airlines website instead. She’s brilliant because the American Airlines website tends to be less broken than US Airways.
Sure enough, there was a take-off time after 6pm and a landing time that seemed more accurate. I drove to the airport in anticipation of the time American Airlines said, and sure enough, he landed right around then.
One of thing things I can’t wait for post-merger is using American Airlines’ technology.
After all, with the US Airways site, you could unknowingly book the wrong flight time–and never be told!
