Hmmm, I didn't think to worry about flight delays for D since American is up and running again after the inspections mess from two weeks ago. But I checked his Seattle-Chicago leg after I got home from class, and its departure was pushed back an hour, to arrive a little before 7:30 p.m. I just checked again, and the plane is indeed in the air, but its arrival is now scheduled for 8:12. And D's 9 p.m. connection is still on time. I hope they don't get delayed any further ...
Yes, this is what I do whenever he's en route, especially since the usual methods of communication (cell/e-mail) aren't available. Have to stay connected somehow.
We had a tornado warning this afternoon that is probably part of the problem:

Of course that wicked storm front that stampeded over Iowa is now sitting over Chicago (and St. Louis and DFW, all AA hubs) as we approach landing time. Hang on to your seat, D! This doesn't look pretty at all. With luck, he'll be able to get to his next flight. With a lot of luck, he won't have to wait for a crew coming from those other cities too.
Nature seems to be hell-bent on sending us some kind of message this month. And now AA has 8:18 for arrival ...
