Fog delays Thanksgiving Day flights at SEA

SEATAC, Wash. — Heavy fog delayed Thanksgiving Day travelers at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, forcing some planes to take off later than scheduled and others to circle around before landing.

FlightAware reported 177 delays Thursday at SEA, and at one point Thanksgiving morning, the airport topped the site’s MiseryMap.

FlightAware reported 37% of departures and 17% of arrivals at SEA were delayed.

Passengers on a short flight from Santa Rosa found themselves circling around Portland before eventually arriving in Seattle.

Another flight from Nashville stopped in Moses Lake to refuel after circling because of the fog.
