For passengers like Amina Maikori, who found herself stranded Thursday at the Lagos airport while trying to fly to Abuja, Nigeria's capital, it meant rebooking her ticket on Aero Contractors and waiting for a later flight.
However, even that flight ended up leaving the airport three and a half hours late without explanation, she said, something she just had to accept with a shrug.
"I think it's more frequent here than anywhere else," Maikori said.
