american airlines overbooks flights and denies boarding to low revenue customers last minute. my arrival was delayed by 12 hours (without hotel accommodation) and my (involuntary) connecting flight was given to standby because I was confused in an unfamiliar airport in state I’ve never been in (CLT, North Carolina) thus I arrived three minutes after doors “closed” (though they were still open and boarding the last group). I am beyond infuriated and indignant. I will never fly AA again, even if they are simply operating the flight through codeshare.
