Airlines Struggling To Start Normal Operations
In the past two days, Sandy has managed to cancel some 2,000 flights from Kennedy Airport. It has irked thousands of people leaving them with nowhere to go. While JFK reopened Wednesday morning but it could not provide full services.
Officials have claimed that passengers must check twice before heading to the airport in order to avoid any sort of inconvenience. "It's a longer wait to get through to our customer support and reservation center. Certainly there are online options as well", said Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue.
It has become an endless wait for many with flights getting cancelled amid problems of power shortage. Among many stranded passengers was Marcelo Olivera and his family, who though called before coming at JFK, are hoping against hope to see if they can get their flight.
In addition, there are news floating that Newark Airport is open but with limited service, and LaGuardia is scheduled to open at 7 a. m. on Thursday, also with limited service. Expectations are high that things would soon be normal.
There are many passengers who are excited to make it sooner or later with news floating that JFK is open, but its only time will tell if hopes are crashed or not.
