Airports packed day after Christmas

Albany - - Many holiday travelers returned home from Christmas visits Wednesday. That meant a busy day at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport. 

Airports all over the country were packed with holiday travelers wrapping up their trips. Passengers we spoke with say it was smooth traveling out of Albany, except for the usual holiday delays that came at larger, connecting airports.

Paul Fenton flew in all the way from Barcelona, Spain.  

"Smooth flight. Only thing is due to the heavy traffic in Atlanta, the flight got in about 30 minutes late but good service, good experience," he said.

In some parts of the country, wintry weather put a damper on many travelers' plans. United Airlines canceled more than 100 flights Wednesday, a third straight day of cancellations connected to weather problems in Chicago.

Administrators at Albany's airport expect crowds to drop after Wednesday.
