Didn't find one of these so here we go. I know I'm not the only one in these forums with an airport/plane horror story. Mine: It was Summer of 2008. My family and I were taking American Airlines from John Wayne Airport to Dallas-Fort Worth Airport to La Guardia Airport. It was all going well until we hit the Inland Empire. Our captain said that "something was wrong with the wings" so we had to go back to LAX. Turns out it was just a pre-cautionary cause at the same day this happened: Smoke in cabin sends flight back to LAX When we got to LAX, the American Airlines customer service was packed with about 300 people or so to exchange tickets. After waiting about 2-3 hours in line, we got to the front only to be told that our tickets can be used for the exchanged flight and we would be at gate number [I forgot.] Plus since there weren't any available flights at DFW till next morning, so they gave us a complimentary room at a hotel in Dallas. So after another 45 minutes passed. We started boarding our plane. But when we go to the ticket-scanner thing. We were rejected because we had tickets for John Wayne. The stewardess sent us back to customer service where we waited ANOTHER Hour. Again. When we got to the front of the line, a different receptionist gave us tickets to a flight that was now-then boarding... at a different terminal. After rushing to the terminal, we made it on board... However, the story doesn't end. When we got to DFW, we received our hotel information and called for a shuttle bus. Since it was midnight when we arrived, the receptionist who picked up the phone started arguing with my mom on how that their last shuttle was at 11:30. They argued until the hotel manager talked to my mom and sent a shuttle bus. But that shuttle bus never came to our terminal so we had to sleep at the airport. I couldn't fall asleep after all these freaking fiascos so I decided to just have an all-nighter. That all-nighter felt like 30 hours because there was no Wi-Fi, only CNN was playing on the TVs, my iPod was dead, and back then I had an LG Chocolate that had nothing entertaining. When 6 AM came, we got to the terminal and finally got to our plane. The. End. Haha sorry for the super duper long rant. How come MR doesn't have a rant and rave forum?
