Toussaint Louverture International Airport, Port-au-Prince, Haiti

According to news reports, Haiti airport security workers and airport screening agents prevented passengers from boarding flights by blocking their way through airport security.

The airport strike ended sometime before noon and flights resumed. This strike was due to dissatisfaction with pay raises, according to a Miami Herald news article.

Many Haitian airline passengers returning to the United States complained about this blockage at the airport. One passenger who was returning from a funeral said this delay would definitely affect his schedule.

What do you think about that?
