Delay Stops, Frustrated Passengers at Philadelphia Airport – NBC10 Philadelphia

Travelers at Philadelphia International Airport faced frustration as flight delays led to luggage pile-ups and long lines Monday morning.

Passengers planning to fly on American Airlines told NBC10’s Brenna Wick that they had been waiting for several hours as flights were repeatedly delayed or canceled.

One traveler from Croatia told NBC10 she was excited to visit America, but the experience ruined her visit.

She said: “We were sitting on the plane for two hours and they told us: If someone wants to leave, you can leave, and you will not be rewarded, and after 50 minutes they let us out.” “We were waiting, I don’t know how long, and at about 2 a.m., they told us the flight was going to be delayed.”

An airport representative told NBC10 that there was a lightning strike in the airport area Sunday evening, which could cause activity at the airport, including loading and unloading baggage. The representative said activity at the airport is often temporarily halted for 30 minutes by airlines in the event of lightning.

Contacted on Monday, American Airlines did not immediately return calls asking why passengers were delayed for hours on end.
