Anyone experiencing/experienced any flight delays?

Wondering if anyone has experienced any flight delays due to everything going on with the flight controller furloughs?

We all just got emails from Jetblue to tell us there might be issues for our trip next week. We are leaving out of Reagan (DCA). Jetblue told us to monitor our flights and that there could be delays at security and departure times. I think the email referenced sequesters as the issue.

I came to this board to see if there were any comments on delayed/canceled flights. Our trip is May 28th Phx to MCO. But we have to travel to Phx from Tucson which is about an hour and a half.

So hoping that everything goes smoothly.

We flew home MCO->DCA->BOS yesterday. The Orlando to Reagan leg was on time, but the Reagan to Boston leg was delayed by 2 hours. No explanation, but it looked like the plane was 2 hours late arriving in DCA - it landed, deplaned, and they put us on the plane and took off ASAP.

We were affected last night. We were flying from Austin to Newark connecting through Houston. We were delayed by 2 hours on the Houston - Newark leg due to air traffic control issues coming into the Newark area. The NYC area airports all reported significant delays yesterday.
