US winter storm causes travel headaches at NY airport

US winter storm causes travel headaches at NY airport

The collision added insult to injury to the airport by causing even more delays. Scores of flights have been rescheduled since Thursday, leaving hundreds of travelers stranded.

On Saturday, the airport was plagued with enormous delays due to what the Port Authority ultimately called "a cascading series of issues" experienced by airlines and terminal operators as a result of Saturday's extreme cold and the "ongoing recovery" from last week's big winter storm.

Flights into the airport were limited by the Federal Aviation Administration including every Terminal 1 flight.

"Frigid temperatures continue to cause equipment failures and slower than normal operations", the Port Authority said in a statement Sunday.

Many passengers were stranded in planes on the tarmac for hours.

The cause of the water main break was unclear, but WABC-TV, citing sources, reported the flood was caused by "frozen standpipe main". At 4:30 p.m., the Port Authority reported power and heat were out in about 80 percent of the west end of Terminal 4 - the very arrivals section that was affected by the water main break. "We have maintenance crews on the scene mopping and cleaning up".

Abrams video showed water on the ground in the arrivals area of the terminal and the chaos as travelers attempted a mass exodus from the airport.

"The primary problem appears to be worldwide airlines arriving without available gates at the global terminals, but we will thoroughly review all aspects of what happened leading up to and during the snowstorm", Cotton said. In terms of global arrivals, there were seven worldwide flights at the gate and those passengers have already been deplaned and are being processed through customs.

With a snowstorm ominously described as a bomb cyclone bearing down on the NY area, the Port Authority started warning about airport disruption and flight cancellations on Wednesday afternoon.

Luggage was still sitting unclaimed at Terminal 4 on Monday as travelers aired their grievances to the airport on Twitter. Rachel Greene stated she has never seen anything close to the situation, and no longer wants to fly from JFK. He said there had been 116 cancellations and 98 delays out of about 600 flights for the day.

Inbound flights to John F Kennedy International Airport's (JFK) Terminal 4, the only privately operated terminal on the site, were shut down for several hours and the terminal building partially closed during the incident.
