BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It’s going to be a tough day to travel. As of 9:15 a.m. Saturday, 425 flights into, out of, or within the United States have already been canceled, with 1,338 delays. The data, from FlightAware.com, shows that predictions of a terrible travel weekend may be accurate.

In Fort Lauderdale, 55 delays are posted as of 9:15 a.m., with United, JetBlue and American canceling a total of 4 flights so far. The delays span all airlines, with Southwest posting 18 delays and Spirit posting 17.

At Palm Beach International, 15 delays are on the books, courtesy of Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, and American. Delta has canceled one flight out of PBI as of 9:15.

At Miami International, 15 flights have been canceled so far, with ten attributed to American Airlines, three to Delta, and two to Air Canada. Perhaps surprisingly, there are no delays reported for Miami International Airport as of 9:15 Saturday.

If you are head to FLL, the airport is encouraging you to seek alternate means of transportation. Parking garages are near — or at — capacity. Airport officials took the rare step on Friday of suggesting travelers use taxi or “ride share” services instead of counting on available parking at the airport.
