American Airlines ,
Please take me home. After the flight from Athens to Philadelphia was delayed from 11:35 to 20:00 we were finally allowed to board the plane. They then told us that customs would not be there for us when we got there. We proceeded to sit on the plane for 2 hours. We were told to sit down and buckle up because we would be leaving shortly (the plan was to fly to EWK and go through customs then fly to PHL). We sat for another hour and 30 mins just to be told our flight was cancelled. I am now sitting in a non-moving line. It is 00:46. I just want to go home. Please send help. People are sleeping on the airport floor. There are crying, tired children, elderly stuck in wheelchairs, and dogs that just want out of their cages. I know you can do something about this. Please. Please do.

Update: I finally got a new flight. I am finally going to be heading home. It's now 5:13. But, the amazing race cast (a show I've never seen) is on our plane... Cool, I guess. Idk other people seem to think it's cool.
Found out that some other passengers on the same cancelled flight (AA759 on 25 Jun from Athens to Philadelphia) were rebooked on:
LX1843 from Athens to Zurich, 26 Jun 0630-0820
AA93 from Zurich to Philadelphia, 1045-1355
If the poster above was rebooked on the same flight (not a certainty), our teams would have been on the bolded flight to Zurich.
teams were connecting via Zurich, here are the most likely next destinations:
Zurich to Mumbai 0945-2140
Zurich to Delhi 1245-2355
Zurich to Tokyo 1300-0750
Zurich to Beijing 1320-0515 (there's an option via Warsaw and Moscow arriving at 0430)
Zurich to Bangkok 1330-0530
And here are most likely not
the next destinations, as there are better itineraries available (including direct flights from Athens):
Dubai, Tel-Aviv, Moscow, Delhi, Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong
