JetBlue Cancels More Flights Amid Wintry Weather

AP AP

Travelers trying to head to the east coast today may want to pack some patience. A batch of winter weather is causing a number of delays and cancellations.

Due to snow, JetBlue cancelled all of its nearly 70 flights at New York's JFK Airport. The airline has said that it is trying to contact all passengers affected either by email or phone.

At least one planeload of JetBlue passengers waited on the tarmac for nearly three hours at New York's Kennedy Airport early this morning before the plane returned to the gate.

"It was so bad," said Segun Akande, a 22-year-old Duke University student. "We were waiting on the plane for so long. You would think they would tell us to go back to the terminal after an hour or two."

"I never witnessed this bad of service in my entire life," added fellow student Doug Rosenberg.

JetBlue spokeswoman Alison Eshelman said the students' departure had already been delayed to 11:47 p.m., and that the plane went out but was brought back to the gate at 2:35 a.m. because of the weather. She said all 100 passengers would receive $100 vouchers; after the previous storm's problems, the company introduced a customers' bill of rights promising to compensate for delays and cancellations.

JetBlue isn't the only airline experiencing weather-related problems.

Delta also cancelled some of its flights.

Though Continental Airlines had cancelled its flights bound for Newark, the airline expects its flights to run close to schedule later this morning.

While the number of cancellations is decreasing at Pittsburgh International Airport this morning, a lot of airlines are experiencing delays.
