US govt shutdown compromises Miami airport operations


From Saturday through Monday, Terminal G -- one of six at the airport -- will close at 1:00 pm (1800 GMT). "Flights that were previously scheduled to depart from Concourse G this Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be relocated either to Concourse F or Concourse H," airport spokesman Greg Chin told AFP. According to The Miami Herald, absenteeism among the Miami airport agents has more than doubled since the shutdown began. "Right now, there's approximately some 40 employees that are calling in sick from TSA," meaning that "this terminal doesn't have the manpower to accommodate all the passengers," airport spokesman Jack Varela told AFP. "The airport, the airlines, TSA, customs we are all doing everything possible to make the passengers happy," Varela said.
