Besides, what do you want them to do? Risk your safety? Airlines suck in so many ways, but not flying in inclement weather is not one of them

Had this shitty experience as well last month. Use your card trip interruption insurance. I had CSR and got $500 to spend for the night

For weather? No airline gives anything. If you have a high enough status and are sufficiently mad, you have a small chance of getting a goodwill gesture. Small.

Good call, D2. Really just wanted them to put me in a hotel for a 15 hour overnight delay.

I'm sure Deloitte has a travel delay insurance program for corporate travel. Accenture has one thru our Amex cards even when the ticket is booked thru the travel agency. It's a rather lengthy process but got my money back
