SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Hundreds of air travelers landed in San Francisco, safe but irritated after a 28-hour overseas flight they say included 12 hours on a tarmac in the Middle East without food or accurate flight information.
A day after flight delays plagued much of the U.S., air travel is smoother Tuesday. But the government is warning passengers that the situation can change by the hour as it runs the nation's air traffic control system with a smaller staff.
Up and down the East Coast, airports are reporting flight delays. This is the first weekday on which thousands of air traffic controllers are being forced to take an unpaid day off because of federal budget cuts.
