Students stuck in airport for 12 hours

When leaving for the annual JEA National Convention, being held in San Antonio, students and advisers from duPont Manual and Assumption High Schools learned that their flight was delayed. After arriving at 4 a.m, the group, as well as other passengers, were led on all day before learning that the earliest the flight would leave was 10 that night. This led to many angry tweets that caught the attention of American Airlines customer service. In the end, a small jet was flown in for the students and their teachers, and 12 hours after they arrived, the students were officially on their way to San Antonio.
