Traveling over Memorial Day weekend? Air travelers could see delays, cancellations, overbookings

Nearly 5.2 million Californians are expected to travel this Memorial Day weekend, breaking all previous records both statewide and locally, the  Automobile Club of Southern California reported.
That includes 3.1 million Southern Californians with 326,000 traveling by air. But if things go anything like last year there will be glitches — lots of them.

More than 825,000 passengers in the U.S. experienced flight disruptions from more 8,500 disrupted flights.
Roughly 20 percent of all flights from Memorial Day Weekend in 2017 were disrupted by delays or cancellations.
