Flight cancellations, delays leave newlyweds, others stuck at OIA overnight



ORLANDO, Fla. - Central Florida won't be hit with some of the nasty weather that is hitting other parts of the country, but the big winter storm is still taking a toll on travel at Orlando International Airport.

The storm cancelled dozens of flights and delayed more than 200 flights.

Brandi and Tyler Dixon were stuck at Orlando International Airport Friday night.
"I'm definitely ready to get home," Brandi Dixon said.

The couple came to Orlando for their honeymoon. They said everything was going great until it was time to fly home.

They said when they saw the weather forecast earlier Friday they were afraid they would be affected.

"It's a little bit frustrating, but there is really nothing they can do to help it," said Tyler Dixon.

They said they are flying standby and weather delays have forced them off their scheduled flight.

"The next flight for us to catch is at 6:30 tomorrow, so we're staying (at the airport)," Tyler Dixon said.

The Dixon's won't be alone at the airport.

There are a number of people awaiting flight out of the airport.

Brandi Dixon said she decided to get comfortable for the overnight stay at the airport and paid a visit to the Disney Store to pick up a pair of pajamas for the evening.

The Dixons said they are concerned about their early morning flight back to Dallas getting out on time. They are hoping the weather clears up and planes get back in the air.
