"If the flight was going to get canceled, it would have been nice to have known it earlier during the day. That way we would have made other arrangements. And I'm sure the whole airport feels that way right now," said Elaine Bodick, visiting from Rhode Island.

The delays also caused long lines at the car rental stations with some visitors telling FOX 35 News they waited five hours for a car this weekend.
