RICHMOND (WRIC) - Dozens of
travelers were left out in the cold after 32 flights were canceled at Richmond
The bitter cold and snow
in parts of the country halted flights to the Midwest and Northeast.
Loran Hill and his wife
were due to fly home to Indianapolis, but their connecting flight got canned.
"Flights to Indianapolis
are all full until Thursday, so thank goodness we have our family here."
The Hills say they're just
disappointed they're missing the 14 inches of snow on the ground there.
Since last Thursday, Richmond
International Airport has seen 250 flights canceled - more than 18,000
Part of the reason is
freezing temperatures. It's taking ground crews longer to do their job and
pilots are now required to take more rest time.
Airport officials say
check your flight status before leaving home so you're not left in the cold.
