Due to severe weather conditions in Florida, Airlines have decided to cancel more than 3,500 U.S. flights this weekend and delayed thousands more.
The latest data from FlightAware, a website that tracks flights, reveals major disruptions at several Florida airports, including Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa and Orlando, Baltimore, New York, and other airports. JetBlue, Southwest, Alaska Airlines, Frontier, Spirit, and American Airlines were most affected.
The FlightAware also noted that JetBlue and Spirit had canceled one-third of Sunday’s scheduled flights.
Due to the cancellations and delayed flights, people on social media complained about waiting on hold or in lines for hours to get their canceled flights rescheduled and being stranded for days.
“Severe weather in the Southeast and multiple air traffic control delay programs have significantly impacted the industry,” a JetBlue spokesperson said.
“Today’s cancellations will help us reset our operation and safely move our crews and aircraft back into position,” the spokesperson added.
