American, Delta and United ground flights into and out of New York’s three airports today due to Hurricane Sandy and travelers are stranded until at least Tuesday, if not later! Airports in Metropolitan New York City area are open, but air carriers are not operating.
Approximately 25% of all flights travel in and out of the New York airports everyday so, this is going to cause problems everywhere. Even if the damage from Sandy is minor, it could take a week before operations in NE airports are normal again.
I’ve already had two flights and two train rides cancelled this week. My last trip still looks like a go at this point.
If you are stranded due to Sandy, let us know what type of delays you are experiencing and where.
I hope that everyone stays safe and out of Sandy’s way.
