Long lines are being reported at Lambert Airport this morning due to sequestration.
What happens in the air today is being closely watched. Commercial airline flights moved smoothly throughout most of the country yesterday, the first day air traffic controllers were subject to furloughs resulting from government spending cuts.
Today is a heavier air traffic day and is seen as the first big test with the furloughs in place.
Passengers at Los Angeles International Airport met with long delays and flight cancellations yesterday - as furloughs for air traffic controllers kicked in under the federal budget "sequester."
Here is what a Southwest Airlines ticket agent telling frustrated passengers a flight to Las Vegas was canceled."Get angry. Get irritated. It's not gonna make it good. We don't want you to be here. We didn't know this was gonna happen, trust me."
Passengers are urged to check on the status of their flight before heading to Lambert Airport on Monday.
