JetBlue Halts Flights at JFK, LaGuardia, Newark and Boston to Catch Up After Weather Delays
JetBlue is shutting down all flights at Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark and Boston airports until Tuesday 7th January 2014 to catch up after snowy, icy weather caused major delays over the weekend.
A spokeswoman told NBC 4 New York the airline needs to halt service to recover from the backup.
All JetBlue operations at those airports will end by 5 p.m. Monday 6th January 2014 and start resuming at 10 a.m. Tuesday 7th January 2014, with full service expected to be up and running by 3 p.m. on Tuesday 7th January 2014, the airline said.
"This plan allows for 17 hours of rest for our equipment and crew members and time to service aircraft," JetBlue said.
"We regret the impact to our customers," the airline said.
JetBlue warned passengers that there are long wait times to speak with agents through its call center. Checking flight status online is recommended.
"I don't know when I'm going to get out of here," said one Philadelphia-bound woman stranded in Boston. "I'll probably be here until tomorrow."
