“So far so good. Yeah it’s been great,” said Yarom. “No delays on the way here. Looks like no delays on the way out either, so far,” laughed Hillerea.
Some passengers like Laura Lee and David Gibson were not so lucky. Bad weather forced their flights to North Carolina to be delayed. ”We were supposed to go through Washington and I guess there’s to much smog we could have gotten in real late tonight but traveling with children its better to just wait another day,” said Lee. “I was supposed to leave at 2:07 and I think I'm leaving at 4:15 and my flight out of DC I'm missing that connection so then they booked me on a later flight,” said Gibson.
RIT student Brian Muller is trying to get home to Switzerland for Christmas, but he’s worried he might not make it. ”JFK is having some issues and now I have to, I'm hoping the next flights won't be delayed or I won't catch my next flight and so its Christmas and I really hope I can get home by Christmas eve,” said Muller. Worldwide about 47- million passengers are expected to fly over between Christmas and New Years Day. As for ground travel, AAA says despite high gas prices more than 65-million Americans are expected to travel 50 miles or more by car this holiday season.
