In Memphis, New Yorkers describe transit strike woes

Airline passengers arriving in Memphis from New York Wednesday told horror stories about the public transportation workers' strike.

Just outside the arrival gate Wednesday afternoon, New Yorkers described extremely long check-in lines and other problems directly related to the Big Apple's mass transit shutdown.

They said getting to airports like Laguardia was just as difficult.

Passengers claimed that many New York cabbies have doubled their prices as the need for transportation skyrockets.

As for the strike itself, some New Yorkers said they support the union others say they support the city.

All say they will be glad when the strike is finally over.
