Friday it was catch-up time, but space on planes was tight.
More than 50 Southwest flights in St Louis were delayed and 300 flights nationwide were canceled, some of them at Lambert. A Southwest spokesman said customers who have flexibility might want to re-book their travel after Sunday. If they call the airline they may find long hold times.
The spokesman said the technology breakdowns have been repaired. It’s going to take a few days to get travel back in order. Traveler George Barron was not happy.
“Little disgusted because they’re having the problems; they shouldn’t be having them if they’re paying the people right to do the job right,” Barron said.
Passenger Marilyn Ortiz added, “It was like a shock, then; just the inconvenience of not knowing.”
