Some passengers flying out of MacArthur Airport Thursday say their flight was delayed for more than 12 hours.

They say they were supposed to board a Frontier Airlines flight at 7:10 p.m. to Orlando, Florida Wednesday.

Passengers tell News 12 they were not able to board the plane until 7:45 a.m. Thursday.

Frontier Airlines says a maintenance problem caused several delays with the flight and that they had to bring in a new flight crew.

The airline says passengers have been given vouchers.
