Serious issues all across the board, chaos at both airports because of lack of staffing, missed the flight courtesy of British airways failures, will not be using either kayak, American Airlines or British airways again.

They cancel flight last minute and didn’t have a flight coming to the airport I booked. Even though I had to rebook to another airport it’s a 1hr and 20 from my home instead of 5-7 minutes. It’s a inconvenience because I’m pushing for time because I have to get back home and get ready for work. I’m very tired and disappointed in the airlines for doing that and should be compensated for it once again.
