Hundreds of flights have been delayed or canceled at airports along the East Coast over the past few days leaving thousands of frustrated passengers scrambling to find other options to get to their destinations.
FOX 35 in Orlando reported that at least 100 flights have been delayed or canceled at Orlando International Airport as of Monday morning, with some passengers telling the station they may not get flights out until Tuesday or Wednesday.
"We’re trying to take deep breaths and understand things happen and they want us to be safe in this weather," one passenger told FOX 35. "But, how will they account for all these people? There are a lot of people."
This is the third day in a row that flights have been affected. FOX 35 reported Spirit Airlines and JetBlue saw most of the issues, with the airlines saying severe weather in the Southeast over the weekend was partly to blame.
The delays and cancelations in Orlando have had a ripple effect at airports in other parts of the country.
Boston 25 News reported that at least 50 flights had been canceled at Boston Logan International Airport, with JetBlue seeing most of the issues.
The airline released a statement and said the severe weather had a significant impact on airlines.
"After the past several days of severe weather in the Southeast impacted airlines with thousands of flights canceled across the industry, we are focused on safely resuming our flight schedule," JetBlue said in a statement.
The airline said it was focused on resuming its flight schedule and has made progress in ramping up operations and repositioning both crew members and airplanes that were affected.
"It's normal for it to take a few days to fully recover when these situations so significantly impact our operations," the airline said. "We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience and we are working to keep them updated and get them on their way as quickly as possible."
It’s been a rainy, stormy few days across Florida.
The active weather came from the same system that produced tornadoes across the South last week.
In fact, cameras were rolling when bolts of lightning struck near the Artemis I rocket at Kennedy Space Center.
Central Florida, including the Orlando area, saw the bulk of the messy weather at the start of the weekend and points south on Sunday.
