Did American Airlines Compensate Us For Breaking Our Stroller?

American Airlines

Back in September, Kim, Lucas and I headed off on a trip to Grenada.

Along the way we had some issues with American Airlines due to switched flights and a broken stroller.

We flew from New York’s LaGuardia¬† Airport to Miami before heading off for our final destination. Upon arrival in Miami, I noticed that something was wrong with our stroller and it turned out that it had gotten broken along the way.

I filed a report at the airport and hoped) that AA would do right by us and cover the cost to replace our stroller. Continue reading Did American Airlines Compensate Us For Breaking Our Stroller?

Our recent flight to Grenada was one of the odder ones that we’ve been on in quite some time.

We sure could’ve used this for our last flight with Southwest.

During our flight to Dallas, we had to catch another flight through Chicago’s Midway Airport. We picked up Lucas car seat and stroller at the gate and noticed that the car seat was filthy. It was damp and covered in a white, soapy substance.

At first we couldn’t imagine what it was. It seemed to be a bit soapy. We then had an idea of what it could be. Prior to take off from New York, our plane had to be de-iced. Out came the trucks shooting a white foam onto the wings of the plane. Could it be that our car seat had de-icing foam on it?
