My wife and son were booked on the non-stop flight to LAX today at 4:50 PM. I get a phone call from AA at 8:00AM saying the flight has been cancelled and they now have are booked on the 10:30AM flight connecting through ORD. Fortunately, she was able to get herself rebooked on the non-stop UA flight at 5:50PM after calling the help desk. How much of a lead time does AA have to give you when they cancel your flight and re-book you? Usually my wife packs day-of for evening flights, but because my infant son was going with her she packed last night. I don't think it would have been possible to pack and drive to the airport during the morning rush hour traffic in time to even catch the flight, not to mention the fact that she would have had to re-arrange her entire work schedule for the day.
