“Air Traffic Controller Furloughs Creating Traffic Nightmares For Passengers”
Flights were delayed in many large hubs — up to three hours for some passengers.
LAX was also affected. The FAA’s website reported a “traffic management program” at LAX is causing “some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 3 hours and 7 minutes. To see if you may be affected, select your departure airport and check ‘Delays by Destination.’”
Reporting for CBS2, Adrianna Weingold said United was reporting delays of one hour, United Express reporting 1 hour and nine minutes and Southwest arrivals delayed up to two hours.
No one wanted to say the delays were related to the furloughs, but did say the delays were not “weather related.”
