the past few months and consistently for the past 7 years. Yes, there
have been some delays... especially on the 8:00PM flight from Miami.
This is frequently because of other flight delays on American or on
other airlines throughout the world and the late flight gets the brunt
of it... If this was a major objection, I would take an earlier
flight. As a rule, American is on time as or delayed as much as any
other air line, based upon my past experience. To imply otherwise is
unfair and untrue.
As for diversions to Panama, in my 25 years of flying to CR, I have
been diverted to Panama one time due to fog in SJO last November. As
my home is two miles from the airport, I called my wife to verify that
the ground fog was in fact "real." We had a two hour circular tour of
Puntarenas waiting for the fog to lift before diverting. As we landed
in Panama, the Captain came on the speaker and said not to deplane as
he had just been told that the fog had cleared and that we would refuel
and go to SJO. We did and arrived at 12:30AM with a planned arrival
Unlike Spirit which seems to have luggage problems, I have never had a
piece of luggage lost that was checked in MIA for SJO.
American is not perfect, but their planes are clean, well maintained,
and pretty reliable...
