SAN ANTONIO -

More than a thousand flights from across America were cancelled on Friday due to a winter storm that hit the northeast.

The effects of those cancellations were also felt at the San Antonio International Airport, which had its share of cancellations and delays on Friday.

Ana Moszee, who went to the airport to drop off her son and his family, said they arrived with plenty of time and they still had to wait longer than usual.

"Of course we get here before (departure) time, but the line was long, and finally, we get up there and it's just limited help," said Moszee. "And they want you to do everything on your own, but sometimes people have questions and there are a lot of people in line."

Suzanne Pequeno said she was actually at the airport on Thursday to see her husband off to Chicago where he's stationed, but that flights on Thursday were delayed then cancelled, forcing them to come back and to fly out on Friday.

"It's insane," said Pequeno. "There should be more computers, more lines, more people working here because it gets packed. You're going to be waiting hours just to get out of line."

And because it's the end of the holiday season and many people were headed back home Friday morning, Ray Luna said he gave himself extra time.

"You just kind of prepare in advance," said Luna. "And make sure you get here with plenty of time and make sure you don't get stuck or (are) running late."
