Missed Connection Tip
My three year old niece is trapped on a CRJ in CID (Cedar Rapids) because of weather. Don't worry, she is with her parents and is possibly the best flyer of the bunch. Heavy weather hit the airport this morning and stopped all flights in and out. They will miss their connection in Chicago. The key to this situation is when a missed connection is likely, get on the phone with the airline and have them hold seats for you on the next available flight. The airline computers don't always update frequently, so you may have better information. Also talking to a person gives you more flexibility than the iPhone app. Acting quickly is important too because it's a race against anyone else and once you secure the seats, they are yours.
