Worst delay

coming home from MSP on Southwest on Christmas eve in the middle of the SWA meltdown. Flight cancelled at 2:20pm when i was outside security. I had no where else to go.

There we no other flights home on any other airline. looks like i would be stuck at the airport for all of christmas.

Few hours later, a singular seat on a delta flight home opened up for 700$. I took it. but that flight ended up being 4 hours delayed not leaving MSP until 10pm. What was supposed to be a fun day trip turned into 19 hours stuck at the airport.

Note to self do not travel over christmas.

(southwest did end up refunding us for the delta flight)
