Storm Delays Flights, Strands Passengers

Posted: Updated:

Right now, most flights are on time, but there are a few delayed. It was a lot worse earlier this morning.  Canceled flights left many stuck at the airport in Fargo, trying to re-arrange their travel plans.

Some people say they kept an eye on the weather and even expected flights to be delayed. All day passengers have been anxiously watching the flight information boards to see if theirs is the next one to be delayed or canceled. Some who's flights were canceled have had to wait around here at the airport, and re-schedule their flights.

"we said we're probably going to hit one of the snowstorms, one of the spring snowstorms...and we did haha." says Charles Marlen who's trying to make it back to Arizona. Many people knew the weather might ruin their travels, and some even tried to plan for it.

Many traveled into Fargo Sunday night. "Actually we came last night because we didn't think that we'd make it today, and luckily we came early because the roads were closed." says Denice Phillips-Kunze who's excited to be going to Las Vegas.

But luck wasn't on everyone's side, some had flights delayed two hours causing them to miss connecting flights. Several flights going to Minneapolis and Chicago were canceled, and some incoming flights delayed.

"We were pretty impressed when we drove up and saw there was a plane that somebody had landed in this weather. It's pretty amazing because we had trouble getting the car here." Charles says. "Honestly we're just hoping to get back to our cat." he laughs.

Those who travel often had the best advice...

"Don't worry about it, there's nothing you can do about it so just, airlines are usually pretty good about re-booking you, and getting you to where you need to go. Maybe not when your expecting to be there, but it's nothing to get upset about." Paul Jones says.

Talking with travelers they say sometimes it's the excitement building up to a trip that is the biggest let down knowing you are delaying time vacation time. Passengers say some of the delayed flights are making them late to get home to pets, and some are missing show tickets.
