Passengers planning to take a holiday break in Las Vegas were left stranded in North Carolina after Frontier Airlines cancellation of their flight last minute Monday night.

Flight 115 was ready to depart to Raleigh-Durham International Airport at 9:25 pm, but never leaving the airport, WRAL reports.

As the passengers were preparing for the board of directors of the airline, told them that one of the flight attendants had worked too many hours and would not be able to fly.

5 UNEXPECTED FOURTH OF JULY HOT DOG RECIPES

Passengers told WRAL the airline offered them all $400 vouchers for the cancelled flight — but they would not be receiving them for another 30 days.

A lot of upset customers at home, not able to make their scheduled trip. Others rebooked on different airlines, but at a much higher cost because of the last-minute circumstance.

“They’ve gone from $129 to $800 per ticket,” David Eilers told WRAL. “So that’s $1,600 dollars, and they say they are going to give us $400 in air credit. Everyone is here pretty disgusted. We’re all in the same boat.”

Passengers said Frontier offered to pay for a night stay. Frontier Airlines not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

This Fourth of July is expected to see a record number of Americans traveling for the holiday.
