Valentines Day at the arrival gate

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE LA -

As people across the globe celebrated Valentines Day on Wednesday many folks in Acadiana had to wait for loved ones to return home in order to begin their festivities.

Amber Butte from New Iberia was one of several wives waiting for their spouses at Lafayette Regional Airport. Her husband, Jamal was on the 5:04 p.m. flight from Houston. The Buttes met in high school and were married in 2014, yet have only been adjusting to this new schedule recently.

"He works 15 days on 6 off," said Butte, who's husband works in the oil industry in Texas. 

Valentines Day began for the family upon Jamal's return. On the slate for the night...."Rest!" said Jamal.
