I was meant to take a flight from BWI connecting Dallas forth worth TX on the 14th of April. I got to the airport and a American Airlines Representative Informed me my flight had been cancelled. I was surprised by this because I did not get a text telling me this. So she booked me on another flight connecting me through Chicago to Tucson. We I got on my flight I looked on my phone to find out that the flight connecting through Forth worth had not been cancelled which angered me. When I landed in in Chicago I was told because of the snow storm no flights were leaving today, and the next available flight they could but me on was Tuesday the 16th. I was so upset, because i was misinformed by the Representative about my flight being cancelled. I then had to spend two nights in a hotel and food that had to come out of my own pocket. I tried to communicate this to AA, and to get some compensation back from the airlines. They refused to pay for my hotel or food that I had to incur when i was there. All they gave me was 5000 miles back on my account, which is a drop in the bucket.
