“While flights were getting canceled, I were crusin on the mazii”: Disney Star Raven-Symoné Flaunts Driving Fuel-Guzzling Maserati To Escape Holiday Flight Cancelations

The packed flight schedules are a common occurrence during the holiday season every year. And a lot of times people don’t even get to book their flights due to excessive traffic. But although last year’s or 2022’s holiday season saw the same amount of people looking to travel via air, Covid-19 along with winter weather made it impossible. Back in December, warnings were issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) about an uptick in positive covid-19 cases among the staff. As a result, more than 1000 flights were canceled and around 8000 got delayed. Undoubtedly it ruined lots of people’s holiday travel plans. Among the many people looking forward to holiday travel plans was  American actress Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman-Maday or just “Raven”. However recently she shared a post showing herself driving a Maserati rental car. According to her, she avoided flight cancelation issues by cruising in Maserati.

Raven-Symoné Avoided Flight Cancellation By Deciding to Drive Instead


On December 31 a huge number of flights were canceled by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the USA. It obviously led to many people’s disappointment in the holiday season. However, Disney star Raven-Symoné seems to have avoided any such cancelation of plans by opting to travel by car instead.

A week after the announcement made by FAA, she shared a post on her Instagram which included a set of various photos. In one of the photos, the interior of the car she was using was shown. The picture also included the actor herself rocking a North Face Jacket with a red beanie. Another shot showed the exterior of the car which was sleek black in color with the Maserati emblem on it.

Starting from the end of December flights started getting canceled due to a surge in covid-19 cases. It started with southwest airlines in the USA which canceled 63 percent of its flights on the 27th. They later issued a statement giving the reason to be “extreme winter weather”. They wrote,

“continuing challenges are impacting our Customers and Employees in a significant way that is unacceptable.”

Soon after that on December 31, Federal Aviation Administration or FAA also announced a warning of cancelation of flights. According to them, there was an increase in positive Covid-19 cases. And lots of employees had been affected. They announced via People magazine saying,

 “To maintain safety, traffic volume at some facilities could be reduced, which might result in delays during busy periods.”

FAA did apologize to its staff and the customers. But the issue caused  1400 flights to get canceled and around 8000 delayed during the holiday season.
