People had to wait for delayed flights for much of the day Monday as they were trying to fly out of Grand Forks. Most delays were about an hour or two, something that's not all that unusual this winter.

After leaving Grand Forks many passengers may have more delays at other storm-struck airports.

Brad Thacher, who is visiting family will stay a little long in the area after hearing of more delays. "I hear the guy in front of my was not going to get home until Thursday. And I was like, 'that is going to be me too,'" Thacher said.

Delta employees worked with customers like Bill Reimers to reroute trips to avoid additional delays.

"It's always frustrating but sometimes you win sometimes you lose. Today I'm actually going to get to my destination quicker. Because he routed me through a different airport," Riemers said.
