Flights Resume After Irene, but Thousands Stranded

Monday, 29 Aug 2011 08:57 AM

 

NEW YORK (AP) — Airports in the New York area are open again now that Hurricane Irene has left town, but airlines warn it will be days before all of the thousands of stranded passenger find their way home.

New York's John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International airports opened to arriving flights at 6 a.m. EDT. Departing flights are expected to start at noon. LaGuardia Airport opened to both arriving and departing flights at 7 a.m.

Flight tracking service FlightAware says there are nearly 1,500 canceled flights on Monday, adding to the nearly 12,000 grounded this weekend. That tops record cancellations seen with a pair of massive snow storms this winter.

There are limited seats for passengers stranded because of Irene. Many flights are full ahead of Labor Day weekend.
