LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – A Henderson couple that traveled 2,000 miles for the holidays is among the many Southwest Airlines passengers who are attempting to return home due to flight cancellations.
Adam Burke and his wife Jennifer spent the holidays in South Carolina, visiting family. They stated that their intention was to return to Las Vegas on Monday night, but they are currently unable to do so. Saturday is the only available flight to Las Vegas.
“At this point, I’m so eager to be home that I would consider a one-way car rental and just drive across the country for however many days it takes,” Adam Burke said.
“We found a hotel last night and renewed our rental car for a week and we don’t know where we are staying after tonight, probably somewhere back in Colombia, we had to find a hotel,” Jennifer Burke added.
“There was a flight from Charlotte to Las Vegas that would have cost us $2,600 a person,” Jennifer Burke said. “Some of the other airlines are really taking advantage of the Southwest [Airlines] downfall at this point, that’s what makes me the maddest.”
