People have had to choose to either splurge for the unexpected expense of a hotel room or seek out a spot on the floor at the airport overnight. Some have canceled their flights on Delta Air Lines to either book a ticket on a competing airline or rent a car to drive as many as 16 hours to their final destinations. Times waiting on hold to update a travel itinerary has been clocked in hours — even for members of the SkyMiles program who have earned elite level status.

I am uncertain as to the veracity of…
