Flight cancelled - What to expect from AA?

Jump to last reply

We were to fly home from Quito, Ecuador to NY on Thursday. At airport at 7AM, noticed our flight was cancelled (mechanical difficulties - same thing happened the day before, apparently).

Finally got rebooked - with 4(FOUR) fights! Made it home Friday evening.

Had to stay overnight in Bogota, Columbia. No one at AA at the Quito airport helped us with this and we paid for it ourselves.

Put in a claim with AA for "Cancelled fight" - but that's only to get the paperwork for our trip insurance.

Should AA pay for our hotel? Should they give us some compensation in terms of free trip, etc?

We also are not getting our FF miles because they rebooked us on Avianca, not a OneWorld partner.

Please help.
