Leaving on a jet plane, don’t know if I’ll be making my flight out of the airport? That’s not how the song goes, but it’s a reality for many people in Canadian airports right now, as they face long lineups, wait times and other issues caused by an uptick of travellers and staff shortages at many flight terminals. As some passengers even are missing their flights, airport related companies are trying to staff up to meet the demand. But solutions take time, so flyers might want to pack a healthy dose of patience with their carry-ons.

This episode was produced by Alexis Green, Matt Hearn and Raju Mudhar.
