I will try hard to never fly American Airlines again. My entire trip was wasted by them rerouting me but sending my tools on my original itinerary. I took the trip only to use the tools and couldn't because I didn't have them. My reroute also cost me 8 hours in town so I had far less time to get anything done. On top of that, there is a charge at every turn, from seat assignments, to checking bags. Its actually cheaper to pay hundreds of dollars more for a ticket to fly on a reliable dependable airline.
