Advice needed! What if we get stranded by AA?

Jump to last reply

We bought a ticket from JTBUSA (a Japan travel agency) that has us on a direct JAL flight from Boston to Tokyo on Nov 15 and returning on AA, NRT-ORD-BOS on Nov 22 (thanksgiving).

Originally, we were supposed to arrive in Boston around 9 PM. Right after we booked, we got notice of a schedule change from ORd to BOS. We are now on a 10 PM flight out or ORD and are scheduled to arrive in BOS at 1 AM on Nov 23.

This is OK...unless AA does something wacky and changes our flight. I want to know what my options are if for some reason they cancel the 10 PM flight out of ORD. Will they pay for our hotel in Chicago? Do we have to sleep in the airport? Will the travel agent be able to help us out or rebook us on another flight so we don't have to spend the night in Chicago?

UGH. I had a chance to take the JAL NRT-BOS flight on the 23rd but I declined to avoid the expense of another hotel night in Japan. Wondering if that was a dumb move.
