Biden triggers delay warnings at Boston’s Logan Airport ahead of infrastructure speech


President Joe Biden chose to deliver an infrastructure speech Monday at Logan International Airport in Boston — ironically, prompting delay warnings at the airport and other transportation infrastructure in the Boston area.

It might have seemed odd to choose an airport to highlight the administration’s supposed progress in improving transportation infrastructure, as the arrival and departure of Air Force One and heightened security around the president would cause delays. and potential complications. Auto traffic delays were also expected, as Biden spoke at the JFK Presidential Library.

In his speech at Logan airport, Biden claimed credit for taking steps to reduce airport delays:

And, by the way, my administration is also cracking down on airlines to ensure passengers are treated more fairly.

Last month, if your flight was canceled or delayed, no leading airline guaranteed to cover your hotel and meal costs; only guaranteed – a guaranteed free reservation, even when the delay or cancellation was the fault of the airline. Well, then Secretary Buttigieg, at my request, called them.

And guess what happened? As of last week, airlines now cover hotels – eight of them; new [cover] meal; new free rebook. (Applause.) And that’s progress. And we are going to put in place more rules to further protect airline passengers.

As of Monday afternoon, Logan Airport was reporting multiple delays, though some flights were operating on time.
