i just noticed while shopping for tickets NY to SDQ, i can't find anything that doesn't stop in miami or san juan. AA loses bags on direct flights. in miami, in summer, there is a thunderstorm everyday. baggage handlers do not work on the tarmac when there is a threat of lightning strike, union rules, and by the rules that can mean a dark cloud 10 miles away. this means that you will make your connecting flight but your bag will not be on it. this is going to be a mess.
