“It was a bit scary because every few minutes we get alerts about our flight being delayed,” she said. “It would let us know if it was one minute, but now it’s three o’clock.”

Alicia Jointer and her husband returned from Punta Canta and headed to Baltimore, but that flight was canceled.

“That is not acceptable,” Jointer said. “I am five months pregnant. I don’t sleep on an airport seat.”

The airline hardest hit by weather delays was American Airlines, the largest carrier, with more than 400 delays.

Passenger Ross Nicastri and his son flew home.

“So we were going back home to Sydney and we were going to miss our flight out of Dallas because that flight arrives after the flight out of Dallas,” he said.
