Travelers across the country remained stranded in airports Monday, after a brutal weekend of air travel.
Nationwide, thousands of flights were delayed over the weekend, and more were delayed Monday.
Most of the issues were caused by storms in the Midwest.
Albany International Airport Spokesperson Doug Myers says Chicago had some ground stops due to weather and LaGuardia had delays due to traffic management. Myers says Monday was extremely busy.
They were expecting over 5,000 people to come through the airport, compared to this day in 2020 they only had a little more than 1,100 people.
