Massive Flight Delays In New York State
The school year is about to start and for students traveling to colleges or universities, there may be a few delays waiting.
There are few things more frustrating than when you flight is delayed and then canceled. It always happens when you just want to get home or are excited for a trip to someplace fun. Weather is always an issue flying out of or in to New York State. However, the next round of delays may be due to staffing issues.
Air traffic controller staffing issues continue to disrupt New York City area flights. The Federal Aviation Administration says it will extend the time frame airlines can restrict the number of flights taking off and landing without getting penalized because of staffing shortages.
This was the same issue back at the end of June as delays were mounting around New York City.
Many families are planning their fall and holiday schedules right now and the last thing they want to hear is that there may be delays. Best advice? Plan a few buffer days around the trip with the idea that plans may change.
