Flight delays at the Boise airport started on Thursday. Half the arrivals and the departure screens had delays. Late Thursday flights between Boise and Portland were canceled.
Passengers say the problem in Portland started around 1pm and caught most fliers off guard as flights started getting delayed and cancelled. "I started out in Portland, there was quite a bit of snow. There was actually a blizzard warning in the gorge. So one of my flights got cancelled and just got rerouted through Seattle," passenger Ryan Carnie said.
Passengers said a lot of delays came from long lines as planes were being deiced before takeoff. Passengers were rerouted to Seattle to try to catch a flight onto Boise.
