They Know Why You Don't Fly

Some 150,000 folks were put out yesterday when American Airlines canceled more than 1,000 flights -- "or more than 45 percent of its daily schedule," says the Reuters video below. And there's plenty more where those came from. But, back to the video for a moment: Really, do you wanna flash your wad of Vegas cash like that? At an airport? Dude. And, incidentally, this is AA's we're-so-sorry site. Best line: "Customers who were inconvenienced with overnight stays may Email American Airlines Customer Relations to request information about compensation." Good luck with all that. --Robert Wilonsky
