SAN ANTONIO – Alicia Garcia’s trip to visit family in San Antonio took more than 12 hours Wednesday after a series of delayed flights due to issues with the FAA’s computer system.
“It’s been a long, long day. We are ready to go home,” Garcia said.
She was on the plane when she heard the news.
“Suddenly they said that flights were suspended. “All get down.”
AAA’s Daniel Armbruster said the latest disruptions come at a time when air travel is returning after the pandemic has slowed.
“We are seeing travel bookings above pre-pandemic levels,” he said.
Armbruster said passengers should consider using a travel agent on their next trip as they can help with deals and offer assistance if they have a problem with their trip.
He said travelers should consider travel insurance when they go on a big vacation.
“If it’s an investment, a big investment you make for travel, think about it. Read politics. Ask a travel consultant about the different options and see what’s available,” said Armbruster.
