I found myself in an unenviable situation when aircraft maintenance issues left me stranded in Bogotá, Colombia’s El Dorado International Airport for more than 10 hours. Here’s what happened. Flying home from Bogota, Colombia on American Airlines.

I was supposed to fly from Bogotá to New York via Miami on American Airlines. It was a simple one-stop itinerary that hundreds of travelers take every day. Flying home from Bogota, Colombia on American Airlines.

American had appeared to be the best choice because of the number of flights it had between Bogotá and the US. Plus, I had the added bonus of flying on its newest aircraft including the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner… An American Airlines Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

And the Boeing 777-300ER. American Airlines Boeing 777 at New York JFK airport before boarding passengers.

But the decision to book on American would come back to haunt me. Flying home from Bogota, Colombia on American Airlines.

The airport experience proceeded as normal. I cleared Colombian passport control
