Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
On November 13, 2012, travel company Surf Patch released a statement on the recent bad news of a nor’easter on the Northeast canceling flights only a week after Hurricane Sandy made a mess of those same airports.
According to a Times Union article by Bryan Fitzgerald, “major airlines are scrapping flights in and out of the New York area.” The article stated that with a new storm on its way to the Northeast, officials met at Albany International Airport to plan for the storm. According to the article, “The Capital Region will likely see its first snowfall since March Wednesday night as a nor'easter that has been churning up the eastern seaboard is expected to move into the area just as the evening rush hour ends.”
The article informed that last week more than 20,000 flights were canceled due to Sandy’s aftermath, and the latest storm although not as strong as Sandy, still brings high winds with heavy snow and rain. According to the article, “Most other airlines, including Delta Air Lines Inc. and Jet Blue Airways Corp., are asking passengers to reschedule their Northeast flights for a later date. They are waiving the usual change fees of up to $150.”
Travel company Surf Patch stressed how hard it is for passengers to fly clear to and from the East Coast. World traveler Takara Licausi stated, “Between Sandy and the latest Nor’easter, Northeast airports have had to cancel so many of their flights making it almost impossible for people to fly clear of delays and hassles.”
