A large group of travelers headed to Jamaica are reportedly stranded at Pearson Airport without their bags on Wednesday morning.

The Fly Jamaica flight they were supposed to board has been delayed since 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

Frustrated passengers tell CityNews they have been waiting at the airport for over 14 hours. Their baggage has already been checked in by the airline and hence they cannot book another flight.

Some travelers were initially told their flight would leave at 3 p.m. Wednesday— meaning they would have already spent over 24 hours at the airport by the time they flew out.

Passengers now say they’ve been told to go home without their luggage and return at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, to board the flight that will reportedly depart at 3:30 p.m.

There is no word from the airline or airport officials at this time.
