Severe weather is causing hundreds of flight delays and cancellations in the Tri-State Area

CBSNewsNew York


NEWARK, NJ — Sunday’s stormy weather caused major headaches for flyers in the Tri-State Area.

All three airports reported hundreds of flight delays and cancellations.

Passengers are usually told to arrive about two to three hours before their scheduled flight, which means hundreds of people in terminals are now being told to wait.

As of 6:30 p.m., Newark Liberty International had the highest number of cancellations with 170 flights not departing due to the storms in our area.

At that same time, John F. Kennedy International had about 150 cancellations and LaGuardia had about 130.

Check your flight status

According to FlightAware, a website that tracks flight statuses, 1,400 flights departing and arriving in the United States were canceled on Sunday.

In addition to these canceled flights, all three airports have hundreds of delays, leaving passengers frustrated, waiting and trying to figure out how to get to their destination.

“It’s been cancelled. We don’t know why and they won’t fly us out for two days from what we’ve been told,” said one traveler.

“I have an interview on Tuesday so I don’t know how I’m going to make it,” said another traveler.

“That’s traveling in planes. You have some bad experiences now and then, and the weather, you can’t help that. So yes, we’re fine,” said one man.

If you’re departing on a Sunday or Monday, you’re advised to check in with your airline for your flight status before heading to the airport – and get your bearings.
