Weather Creates Airport Hassle For Holiday Travelers

Low cloudcover in San Francisco put some passengers flying out of San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport Friday morning behind schedule.

“I got here at 7 and I still haven’t left and it’s almost 1,” said Jameson Grimes.

Grimes is heading to Oregon to be with his family for Christmas and

he is one of many travelers whose flight was delayed.

“It’s annoying, but what can you do? There is no reason to get mad about it,” said Grimes.

Jessica Griffiths had a different feeling about the delays. She told KCOY 12’s Cory James that after living in San Luis Obispo for five years, Friday the airport was “one of the busiest [she] had ever seen.”

AAA reports that nearly 100 million Americans will travel more than 50 miles by car or plane this holiday season; that number is up almost 5 million from 2013.

Airport officials said because of the weather, especially the recent rain, there have been more delays and cancellations than normal. They said checking in with your airline before arriving at the airport is the best way to keep track of your flight and prepare yourself for possible setbacks.

“Check the website. You can pull up the flight information, plug in your flight number to see if it’s on time and to see if there’s any cancellation or delays,” said Craig Piper.
