U.S. airlines cancel flights due to COVID-19 outbreaks

U.S. airlines are cancelling flights en masse due to outbreaks of COVID-19. There are more cases of infection among crew members. Passengers are forced to wait at airports for several hours.

“There are no conditions for waiting, nowhere to eat, we’ve been here for a long time.

More than 12,000 flights in the U.S. have been cancelled since December 24. Another reason for the delays and flight cancellations was bad weather, with snow blanketing Chicago.

“We’re waiting 30 minutes for now. I hope we won’t have to spend the night here,” said Sylvia Robinson.

More than 800 flights were canceled at O’Hare Airport. The weather was bad in Denver and Detroit. The storm and snowfall are moving toward the northeastern states.
