Since the grounding of Boeing’s 737 Max jets due to safety issues, spring break travelers are experiencing delays upon delays. Airlines and travel agents are busy trying to accommodate passengers amidst the inevitable flight cancellations.

At Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in Canada, airline passengers are facing long standby waits for flights ever since the Boeing 737 Max 8 and Max 9 jets were shut down yesterday by Transport Canada. Vancouver International is anticipating a daily average of close to 75,000 passengers being delayed during the upcoming spring break period.

The three airlines affected by the ban at Vancouver are Air Canada, WestJet and Sunwing. Because of the number of customers affected, there may also be delays in speaking to a rebooking agent.

“I was expecting to get delayed but not by this much,” said Steven Parsons, a high school student from London, Ontario. “On the SkyTrain on the way over here, I got four emails from WestJet saying I got delayed,” he said.
