Airlines Resuming Flights In The Northeast
NEW YORK (AP) - Airports in the New York area are open again now that Tropical Storm Irene has left town, but airlines warn it will be days before all stranded passengers 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 cancelled 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.
