I booked a flight from L.A. to Brazil for my wife, DIL & SIL with American Airlines. It was the shortest travel time (14 hours) and the cheapest flight. The one stop connecting flight is in Miami. From what I've been seeing on the Internet, they are having a pilots/airline problem with some kind of slowdown by the pilots. Here's my question, there's only 50 minutes between the landing of the first leg and switching planes for the second leg. I've been watching the flights for the last several days with the first leg being delayed almost every day making it impossible for them to switch planes in time. What does the airline do to take care of the passengers if they miss the second leg? Both flights are with AA.
