WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Labor Day Weekend marks the unofficial end of Summer. With many traveling home by plane or hitting the roads.

We talked to one family traveling from Wichita back home to Austria and they were a bit nervous about traveling home on Labor Day.

“Well, we had a pretty rough trip over here with a lot of delays. So now that we know we're traveling back on Labor Day, yeah we're a little bit nervous everything's going to go through,” said Erin Maletz.

She and her family came to Wichita a month ago to visit her children's grandparents but ran into some trouble on the way.

“Our flight from London to Dallas was canceled. So we ended up spending two extra days in Frankfurt,” said Maletz.

On the way back to Austria they have to go from Wichita to Dallas, then to London and finally home to Austria. That's three planes and a total of 16 hours of flying.

“So the risk is pretty high one of them may not come through for us,” Maletz said.

AAA says Labor Day weekend travel is expected to be up 4% over last year in the US. for international travel, and up 44% compared to 2022.

Though many people experienced difficulties while traveling, some air travelers had no problems at all.

“Our flights are on time, and everything looks to be going smooth," said Emma Miller traveling to Destin, Florida. 

One traveler we spoke to started driving his way back to Kansas City from Oklahoma City Monday afternoon.

“They've been pretty good, a bit of construction, but it's not too bad. You just put it cruise on and keep going,” said Joshua Wester.
