Pros: The actual flight was fine. Getting a boarding pass and checking bags was a frustrating adventure.
Cons: American cancelled my original flight. I was shocked to find that there was no AA representative available at ANC airport at 5:15 PM to discuss options. I had to ask someone from United what to do and was referred to Alaska Air. AA basically let Alaska Air figure out what to do with all of the stranded passengers and gave no indication as to why. American Airline did not inform me that Alaska air was going to be my new airline. I had to uncheck/recheck bags and go through TSA security twice. I will not use American any longer
