    As Elaw said, there is no dedication to human decency as lots of stranded Delta passengers are fairly regularly left stranded with Delta sending no rescue planes...

    The trouble is that humans have short memories and marketing departments know this...Sure, there will PROBABLY be an uptick as AA will note devote time to track stormy days at ATL and see who might be stranded and inform their gate agents to look at the competitor's gates to see if there's a good looking group of school kids needing to get somewhere...

    In the meantime, My company's travel webservice will continue to sort by fare, bitch if I go over by $50 and I'll tend South on American, East on Delta and maybe sneak in the occasional WN non-stop (which is a good bit more expensive for 1- being non stop and 2- being Southwest which is often NOT the low-fare specialist.)

    At least the lavatories are bit (though I'm not so sure the RJ ones are better than the lav's that have space devoted to the DCAS processor.)

    Semantics...

    Add Air Canada to the debarcle:

    Too bad she didn't geek out on aviation forums. She might have known how to start the APU.
