Dazed and definitely confused – airlines, airports and travelers are trying to pick up where they left off before super-storm Sandy blew through.
Although it will certainly take a while to deal with and accommodate the backlog of passengers whose travel was disrupted by thousands of flights canceled due to the storm, airlines are resuming their flight schedules where possible.
Re-opening the airports in the New York City area will help. The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey plans to re-open John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Newark Liberty International Airport on Wednesday morning, October 31 at 7:00 a.m. for limited service. Rail service on AirTrain JFK and AirTrain Newark is suspended until further notice, however, and there’s no word on when LaGuardia and Teterboro airports will reopen.
On the other side of the country, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has a Halloween activity planned for travelers on Wednesday: airport staff and volunteers “dressed in ghoulish outfits” will perform “a spirited and thrilling dance performance” and hand out Halloween treats at 10 a.m. in the ticket lobby of the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT).
