My first flight was delayed 40 minutes. It was the first flight of the day, so I’m not sure how that happened. Thankfully, I had enough of a layover to not stress about making it to my next flight.
It turns I wouldn’t have needed that longer layover as the next flight was late to arrive, therefore my flight was late to take off by 30 minutes. We taxi’d on the runway for another 30 minutes before we were told we needed to turn around and get more fuel. Once we got to the gate and sat there fueling up our pilots told us that due to the delay they had “timed out,” so another crew was going to come on and fly us to Omaha. I am sitting here writing this as I’m waiting for that crew to come. At this point we will be at least 2 hours late.
Good thing I ate something before getting on the plane since they aren’t serving food either.
My boyfriend also experienced similar delays and issues when he flew American.
I’m going back to Southwest after this.
