Airport Chaos: Travelers Face Canceled Flights For Fourth Of July Holiday

Published on

The day before the Fourth of Independence holiday, 89 flights were canceled across the nation due to storms.
At the very least, 15 states will be experiencing severe weather ahead of Independence Day. Hail and wind damage, as well as possible tornado damage, have caused havoc along the East Coast of America and Mississippi River region, according to reports.

According to FlightAware.com, more than 900 flights into or out of the United States have been canceled. The Daily Mail reports that 15,567 flights have been delayed. Many passengers are left stranded. Some reportedly sleep in airports and wait hours to rebook their flights.

A passenger was stuck in Newark’s airport for five long days after United Airlines cancelled his flight.

Scott Kirby, CEO of United Airlines, chartered a plane from Teterboro Airport, New Jersey, to Denver, Colorado on Wednesday. United Airlines cancelled 751 flights that day. Since then, he has apologized for making the “wrong choice” and being “insensitive” towards his customers.

In an apology letter, Chief Customer Service Officer Linda Jojo offered United Airline passengers 30,000 miles of flight as a way to make amends.

United Airlines canceled 19% of its flights last month. According to the company, the cancellations are due to thunderstorms as well as equipment failures in a U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) facility. The company has even criticized Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s handling of these equipment failures.

Buttigieg claimed that United Airlines was suffering more than any other airline.

The storms will affect people traveling along the I-95 corridor, from New England up to the mid-Atlantic.

Storm Prediction Center has labeled parts of the Plains, Midwest and South Carolina as level 2 on the scale of thunderstorm risk.

The East Coast is expected to experience severe storms throughout the holiday season.
