I Barely Avoided Making This Mistake When Booking An American Flight

We haven’t had the best luck when flying with on American Airlines. On our only trip this year, we were proactively offered a bump voucher to take a later flight.

They did offer power outlets and the reasoning for the decision was that people wanted to watch their own devices while onboard, not a seatback screen.
