I doubt that American Airlines has evolved into a kinder, gentler version, now only interested in doing the right thing. Connections have in my observation become tighter, more problematic.

There has never been any cost for missing a connection on the same ticket.
am i old fashoined,or maybe its because i knew AA when they did not charge a standby fee,and if you missed your flight,and others were available to book, the agent would do so as a courtesy to the customer and had ways to "override" if there was a restriction..if it meant sending them to another airline,we could call or do what used to be called a "rule 240", which i am not sure still any case,the name of the game is first and foremost money by keeping the passenger a happu traveller who will fly aa again,or recommend it to friends,family and business associaties..being "late to the gate" or the ticket counter can be caused by many things from accidents,lots of traffic,hold ups at security checkpoint by tsa,not being able to find parking at the terminal and much more..not everyone can leave 4 hours early to catch a flight!!!
