Midwest snow storm causing problems for passengers at Lambert
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Bad weather is causing major problems for hundreds of passengers at Lambert Airport. They faced more cancelations and delays Monday.
Lambert officials made it clear the problem isn’t here. But at other airports, in cities like Chicago, also hit hard by wintery weather.
Passengers with luggage in hand arrive at Lambert Airport, hoping to catch their respective flights. Fred Nettles and his wife Wanda drove here from Springfield, Illinois.
While all four runways are open, and planes are coming and going, there are still delays and cancelations, much to the dismay of passengers like Rachel Schwartz who came to St. Louis to visit her boyfriend, and is now trying to return home to Florida.
By mid-afternoon there were long lines at ticket counters filled with anxious travelers hoping their flights take off on time.
Some 300 flights were cancelled Sunday due to a massive snow storm. By noon Monday, that number had dropped to just over 100 flights.
A system that`s left passengers whiling away time sleeping, eating, even getting a shoe shine as they long to reach their destinations and collect their bags.
With more bad weather expected to slam the east coast Monday night and Tuesday.
Officials say there will be more delays for the next couple of days.
