Delays at LAX After San Francisco Plane Crash

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — After a Boeing 777 crash landed Saturday at San Francisco International Airport, officials canceled 22 flights that had been scheduled to fly there from LAX.

Two runways at SFO that were closed after the crash were later reopened, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, allowing some diverted L.A.-to-San-Francisco flights to proceed as originally scheduled.

Brianna Beach, a traveler stranded in an LAX terminal Saturday afternoon, said she had been there for hours after her planned flight to San Francisco had been re-routed.

“It’s been like five hours, and then I had to buy another plane ticket for Southwest because United isn’t flying out,” she said, referring to two airlines. “Like, none of their affiliates are flying out until at least tomorrow afternoon.

“I am so tired,” she added, “and I’m sad [about] what happened, but I wish they had a better way of handling the situation with all the passengers.”
