NEW YORK, Oct. 29, CMC – Hurricane Sandy has grounded flights to and from the Caribbean at New York’s three major airports, considered the busiest in the United States.
FlightAware, a Houston, Texas-based air tracking service, said on Monday that about 7,500 flights had been canceled for Sunday and Monday, with major carriers such as American Airlines, JetBlue and Delta cancelling all flights into and out of John F. Kennedy International, La Guardia and Newark International.
“This is a time period that’s relatively slow for travel, so it’s mostly going to affect business travelers,” said Rick Seaney, chief executive officer of website Farecompare, told reporters here. “If this was happening during Thanksgiving week, it would just be a nightmare.”
