Arlethia Davis is trying to get to Los Angeles to see her family.

She says last night she got a text saying her flight had been rescheduled and that she would have a layover in Austin, arriving in LA later.

"We're just trying to figure out what's going on. We're trying to avoid this line, and we are just trying to get home. This is a mess," Davis said. "Don't wait one or two days before Christmas. We talked to one customer whose flight was rescheduled until Sunday."

AAA estimates 112.7 million people will travel 50 or more miles from December 23 to January 2, with nearly 7.2 million expected to fly.

Airlines are asking travelers to check their flight status before heading to the airport.
