More flight cancellations raise questions about systems at airport

Travelers expecting to get out of Chicago today and tomorrow will have to make other plans. Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway airports are cancelling more than 700 flights. This comes as O’Hare is still trying to recover from the shutdown earlier this week from a fire at an Aurora air traffic control center. Passengers have asked how the system can be improved so future major cancellations don’t occur. Aviation expert Gregory McGuirk explains what needs to happen and travel expert Patrick Smith offers guidance on how to keep your itinerary after the airlines let you down. (Clive Darra/Flickr)
