Supper storm Sandy really messed up air travel last week and now a Nor’easter is doing it again.
On Tuesday, many airlines began proactively canceling flights and posting travel waivers for much of the east coast. Late Tuesday night Flightstats.com was listing more than 680 cancelled flights for Wednesday.
Here’s a short list of links to the airline travel waivers and cancellation notices. Some airlines still have travel waivers for Sandy in effect.
“Due to severe weather projected for the Northeast this week, American Airlines and American Eagle are suspending operations on Nov. 7, in Philadelphia (PHL) at noon and at all New York-area airports by 3 p.m.
Operations at these airports are expected to start up again the morning of Thursday, Nov. 8. American and American Eagle have canceled approximately 290 flights to, from and through these airports on Nov. 7 and 8. Additional delays and cancellations may occur as American resumes operations in New York and Philadelphia.”
