'Tis the season – the season of holiday travel complaints, that is.
Travelers didn't hold back on Twitter on Christmas Eve, detailing everything from minor travel annoyances to delayed and canceled flights.
One Twitter user griped about spending Christmas Eve in the airport due to delays.
Traveling home for Christmas. 20 minutes before departure, I get this. Smh @Fly_Norwegian And this one didn’t leave till 3 am. Now missed my connecting flight. Family in Denmark waiting for me with presents and food. Christmas Eve in an airport. @NorwegianUKI pic.twitter.com/1UgY46ImFL— Philip Michael (@Philip_Michael) December 24, 2018
User @SaraByTheLake called out United for a five-hour delay, writing: "This is not how I wanted to spend my Christmas Eve."
@united 5+ hour mechanical delay at PVD today. This is not how I wanted to spend my Christmas Eve. Sadly, no other flights out today, so we sit and wait...and wait...and wait.— Sara Ulius-Sabel (@SaraByTheLake) December 24, 2018
Another traveler took aim at Southwest for delays on a flight from Baltimore to Phoenix.
@SouthwestAir Flight 435 Baltimore to Phoenix delayed again ☹️ It was supposed to be a 10:15 AM departure now a 1:50 PM departure. Thankfully this is all happening on Christmas Eve when nobody has any plans 🙄— Christian Miner (@CTMiner) December 24, 2018
One traveler complained of a missing bag situation from Dallas to San Antonio, Texas. "@AmericanAir MULTIPLE BAGS MISPLACED or NOT PUT ON FLIGHT!!... This is unacceptable," the traveler lamented.
Some travelers, meanwhile, were just surveying the madness.
"Flying on Christmas Eve = new unique hell," one user tweeted.
Another commented: "Nothing shows defeat more than the face of parents flying with three kids at 6:30 a.m. on Christmas Eve."
One user waiting for a flight to Omaha wanted people to remember the spirit of the holiday, saying, "there are some very unjolly people here that have yelled at airport employees. Be kind to one another this holiday and always after that."
Other travelers recounted an overall more pleasant experience.
One person had a speedy 31-minute ecurity check.
