This is a quick note to let you know that I am back from my travels over the Christmas holidays. I went to Maine to spend a few days with family members.
You may have read about all the disruption in the airlines with cancelled and/or delayed flights. While I went to Maine last week without difficulty, the trip back yesterday was not as smooth. My first flight of the day was cancelled. The airline then re-routed me via a different route. There were some mix-ups along the way but I eventually made it home, although somewhat later than originally planned.
More than 2,500 flights were canceled Monday as Covid cases surge across the globe. Of the more than 2,500 canceled flights, nearly 1,000 were within, into or out of the United States, according to FlightAware. Almost 8,000 flights are delayed.
My difficulties seem rather minor compared to what many other people encountered.
