BOSTON (WHDH) -- The San Francisco plane crash of Boeing 777 from Seoul, South Korea has impacted passengers and flight schedules at Boston Logan Airport.

From the wreckage in San Francisco, to flights at Logan, canceled and rerouted.

“San Francisco is completely shut down,” said Brian Kemler, trying to fly to San Francisco. “I got rebooked to L.A. late tomorrow night, and then rebooked to San Francisco early Monday morning. Then I saw a half hour turned into an hour. I was like ok an hour, this is not going well.”

“We were supposed to be to a flight a couple hours ago,” one woman said.

A group of friends tried to get home but couldn’t find a flight out west.

“Now they're all canceled, we actually have to be stuck here until 5:00 a.m. Monday,” another woman said.

“Nobody really going on or anything like that. We just know that we're not able to get to there now, and that's kind of what counts right now,” said a woman trying to fly to San Francisco.

Families were forced to book new flights.

“We just go JetBlue and rescheduled,” one woman said.

Many opted to fly to L.A. or Oakland instead.

“There's nothing I can do except wait for them to tell me what's going to happen, and find out if I’m going to get out tonight” said Tim Callan.

Tim's wife waiting for him in San Francisco. They're both unsure when they'll eventually touchdown.

“It's just a flight. I'm not worried about it,” Callan said.

Passengers said some airlines actually gave out vouchers for a hotel stay for a night or two. They also anticipate adding flights as early as Sunday to help facilitate the ease, making their way back west.
