The start of our vacation was a flight to DFW Airport. It was with “Envoy Air” as American Eagle whatever that means. We arrived in plenty of time and checked our luggage. The time for boarding came and went and soon there was an announcement over the PA telling us our flight had been cancelled due to aircraft electrical problems. We were told to come to the reservation counter to reschedule. Bummer.
We had the option to wait for a much later flight, retrieve our luggage and drive to DFW, or take the charter bus the airline offered. Taking the bus sounded like the best option. Our cancelled flight should have left at 6am, we cooled our heels until 7:30 when the bus arrived.
Once on board the bus it took another hour to drive up to DFW. Needless to say we missed our flight to Salt Lake City.
They got us on the next flight to Salt Lake City but it was a two hour wait.
We finally arrived at 3pm instead of at Noon as planned.
But we made it. We had high hopes that the return flight would run more smoothly. We flew out of Salt Lake City today.
When we arrived at DFW we were told our American Eagle would leave from Terminal B46. We arrived and sat down to wait. Soon the PA announced that the flight was delayed a half hour. Then the electronic billboard said our flight was moved to B23. No PA announcement this time. Then our flight was moved to B30, again no PA announcement. At B30 we were told it would be another half hour as they were waiting for a crew. Finally we boarded this baby and in 20 short minutes was home!
If you plan on flying with American Eagle, you can pretty much depend on having an “Adventure”. Be prepared to Improvise, Adapt and Overcome!
