Many Spring Breakers trying to make it home from Florida were greeted with a nightmare at airports this weekend.
Airlines canceled more than 3,500 flights in the U.S. – 1,500 on Sunday alone – and delayed thousands more because of storms in Florida along with what was described as “technical issues” by Southwest.
Major disruptions were reported at airports including Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, and Orlando. JetBlue and Spirit canceled one-third of Sunday’s scheduled flights. Social media was flooded with stories from people complaining about not being able to get new flights out for several days.
