WARWICK, RI- Passengers at T. F. Green Airport are scrambling to get home.

Mike Rothenburg's Boston to Tampa flight was canceled this morning so he drove all the way to T. F. Green, hoping he'd catch a new flight.

Rothenberg said, "That flight is also canceled so I'll be hanging out here at the airport a little bit longer than I wanted to."

He's trying to get back to work.

One little girl and her family also have an important destination

"We were going to Orlando for Disney World. It was her first ever trip, and now we had to delay it and last year it got canceled so I have a very disappointed eight year old on my hands," said Joan Mello-Brennan.

All over the country, passengers are being bumped to flights days away, including a group of friends, trying to get home to California.

Hannah Volkland said, "We don't have it the worst. They said that there have been people here camped out for a week."

At Boston's Logan Airport, people have been camping out for days, and airlines are blaming the high demand after the holidays, bad weather backlog, and new pilot rest rules.

Jet Blue has temporarily shut down operations at several airports including Boston, as it works to get passengers who were delayed to their destinations.

More than 1,000 flights were canceled throughout the Midwest.
