☆ delay 遅らせる
Once when I flew from Japan to the USA with a couple of Japanese clients, we were caught up in a big pilot strike, so there were not as many flights taking off as usual. It was very bad timing and we were delayed and rerouted through a different city, too!
The airport staff didn’t seem to care that we were heading to a seminar in Atlanta, they rerouted us through a tiny city way up north even though we landed in San Francisco. And, because our flight was delayed, we missed the connection to Atlanta! In the end, we made it to the seminar, but only just in time!
Flights being delayed is a normal part of traveling, I guess, but it is very stressful when you have to get somewhere on time!
