Being stuck at the airport: no day at the beach

The travel news this week has been all about American Airlines, all those canceled flights, and all those travelers left stuck at the airport.

Today – Saturday – was supposed to be better. But then the airline scrapped yet another 200 flights.

That means that a lot of folks will stay stuck at the airport.

American Airlines officials say they’re terribly sorry about this mess. We know travelers are pissed off about this mess.

But what about airports? For an article on yesterday, I checked in with a few airports to find how they’re dealing with this mess. “We’re doing the best we can to accommodate all these unexpected guests,” one airport official told me, “We know that getting stuck at the airport is no day at the beach.”
