US Air Travelers Face Weekend of Delays and Flight Cancellations

Long lines were seen at American Airlines hubs across the US over Halloween weekend, as the carrier cancelled hundreds of flights.

According to the flight tracker Flight Aware, the airline cancelled almost 550 flights on Saturday, October 30, and more than 750 on Sunday.

This video, taken on Saturday at Miami International Airport, shows long lines.

In a letter addressed to staff, American Airlines cited bad weather as a cause for initial delays, which cascaded into staffing issues that worsened the situation, USA Today reported. The Dallas Morning News reported that some 180,000 people had been impacted over the weekend.
