Nashville airline travelers experience delays, cancellations


Nashville may have dodged the winter storm bullet once again this year, but some airline travelers were not as lucky.

Tim Domnick drove 70 miles one way from Manchester Thursday night just to find out his wife's flight from Germany was canceled in Newark, New Jersey.

"I had come all the way down here last night. It was supposed to [arrive at] 9:50 last night and got in here and looked at the board and it was canceled," he told Nashville's News 2.

Ursula Heitz was closely watching the weather Thursday night. She is the team leader for a medical mission team headed to Haiti from St. Matthews Catholic Church in Franklin.  

"American Airlines had canceled their flights last night and so we decided to not wait, if Southwest canceled theirs, then all of us would have to rebook. We have a team of about 15 joining up with us to have a team of 21 total when we get there."

Rescheduling 15 people at the last minute was not an easy job.

"I had my cell phone, I had my home phone, I had email, I was texting people, my daughter cooked dinner and kept telling me, 'You are doing good, you are doing really well mom.'"

Heitz said it was worth all the trouble to have the peace of mind knowing they will remain together as a group and still make an important connecting flight in Miami.

Mark Wynn was delayed in Cleveland, Ohio on his way to Nashville Friday morning but said he would rather be delayed than have trouble in the air due to weather.

"It was alright, I got some sleep, some well enough good sleep," he said.

Those who were delayed seemed to make the best of the situation.

It is recommended to check the status of your flight with the airline before heading to the airport.
