    Well I don't know how good at this I am going to be but thought I'd give it a shot.

    So far trip is off to a very rocky start. Flight to Vancouver cancelled so just finished waiting a few hours to get re-booked. Original 2pm arrival now looks like after midnight . I will miss my planned brunch at Herringbone and dinner at Carbone.

    A tight connection in LA once we get there from Vancouver so keep your fingers crossed for us that we even make that late flight to Vegas.

    Hoping for some luck to bounce back our way once we arrive in Vegas .

    So sorry to hear that delay has knocked out some of your plans! Hope it's the end of the bad luck and you have a winning trip to make up for it!

    Safe travels today!!

    Yes we are also still hoping to see if the mechanic they flew in will actually be able to fix the plane so we can even get to Vancouver...

    Kamloops. We contemplated renting a car to drive to Vancouver but are putting our faith in this as that would be out of our own pocket.

    He did it! Looks like plane is just passing final inspection.

    They put a note on our tickets about the tight 40 min connection in LA. They might golf cart us to the next terminal. We have nexus so that should help with the fast lane through security.

    When we get to Vancouver we will use the very generous (sarcasm here) $10 meal voucher they gave us. Really 12 hours of lost Vegas time and they offer us $10???

    Yay!!!! You will soon be on your way! Oy, the stress of it all!!

    $10 for 12 hours? Niiiiiiiiiiiiice. Put some pressure on them and try for a flight credit to make up for lost day!!

    Another report of great service from AC. I fly weekly for work and I try to book with WestJet whenever possible. Anyway, the bad luck is over, get to Vegas and turn it around.

    So let's see; delayed flight, reimbursement of a whole $10 and stuck in LA. I'm pretty sure it has to be all up from here for you. Yikes.

    Just arrived at Aria!

    OMG that was a crazy connection. Had to run from terminals at opposite ends of LAX, beg to cut the security line, and we made it as the last people on the plane. I am so out of shape! I had sweat pouring off my face.

    Air Canada was very helpful and gave a map of where to run (again sarcasm).

    Amazingly our bags made it too. First off so must have been the last on.

    Eating at Lemongrass as that and the Aria Cafe are the only things open. I really just wanted 550 Pizza but they are closed.

    Glad to hear you made it to the Land of Lost Wages safely! Although I agree missing Carbone for dinner sucked, but Lemongrass is definitely not a bad choice for a first meal.

    I know you probably wanted something simple that late at night, but at least for me, can't go wrong with Thai food there.
