Many families head home after the holidays with the luggage they brought and a few extra presents in their carry-ons.
The same types of delays and cancelations seen nationally due to weather and COVID-19 staffing shortages haven’t plagued sac airport.
Instead, issues here stem from planes coming from or going to Seattle. Those were either delayed by upwards of a couple of hours or canceled entirely.
