Flights Grounded At U.S. East Coast Airports As Controllers Call In Sick

According to Reuters, hundreds of flights were grounded or delayed at New York-area and Philadelphia airports on Friday, as air traffic controllers called in sick hours before President Donald Trump announced an end to partial shutdown of the U.S. government.

Trump said on Friday he had reached a deal with U.S. lawmakers for three weeks in stop-gap funding that would end the budget stalemate with Democrats.

Hundreds of thousands of federal workers have been furloughed with some airport workers, required to work without pay, during the shutdown.
