SE – The SEA-TAC — A deadly Asiana plane crash in San Francisco caused a list of cancellations and diversions at Seattle-International Airport.

Three domestic flights were cancelled soon after the crash. Two Virgin America and one United flights were cancelled for hours. Six international flights were diverted to Seattle throughout the day. Hundreds of people lined up at ticket counters hoping to get on another flight.

By Saturday evening, runaways at SFO reopened allowing many of the stranded passengers to finally take off for San Francisco.

Airport officials say to check your airline if you are going to SFO or have a connection there.
