Never used it before - will NEVER use it again. Had reservations to BZE, nonstop leaving DFW on American. I just received an e-mail today saying my itinerary has changed: I now am supposed to fly to Miami on American, sit there for 2 hrs and then fly to BZE; same thing on the way back. So what was a 2 1/2 hr flight from DFW for me has now turned into a 5 1/2 hr trip. Anyone ever had this happen and do you know if it will do any good to b---- at Priceline or American?

Why wouldn't you fly/hop on over to Houston and leave from there?

I booked it thru crappy old priceline. I've been informed American no longer has a non-stop on the day I'm flying and that they only fly from Miami on that day (Wednesday). Live and learn - my lesson: no Priceline and all my flights to BZE will now be on Continental from now on.

Houston has both Continental and TACA.... I think CO has a morning flight and an afternoon. TACA only has one flight... if it leaves on time or at all even. eek Plus I could come to the airport and bring you water, a sandwich or whatever else you might need. eek

...or book directly thru AA. Sounds like Priceline is the one who doesn't have their act together...not American.

We used them one time, went to Wisconsin. I believe we could have driven most of the way there with the time we actually spent going to our local airport, to Chicago and it's delayed layover time and circled the airport a few times.

Then we had to wait for our friends. We phoned ahead to let them know of the long delays.... LONG LONG trip.

It was on Continental frown

It was a test, only a test and Priceline failed.
Time is money. We only were on a long weekend.

I guess things happen all over, but if we had been going to BELIZE.........yes, you bet I would have been more upset eek

Always remember and never forget . . .time is money. And on holiday time, it's far more important that you get where you want to go and when you want to get there, than it is to worry about a couple of hundred bucks difference on airfare.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?
