More Flight Delays, Cancellations Expected After Hurricane Irene
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Travelers scheduled to depart from Los Angeles International Airport Monday are being reminded to check for possible flight delays or cancellations in the wake of Hurricane Irene.
New York’s airports reopened Monday morning after being shut down for much of the weekend.
American and United flights to both La Guardia and JFK airports were departing on time Monday morning.
However, JetBlue and Delta have canceled some flights heading to the East Coast.
More than 10,000 flights were canceled over the weekend, but LAX officials say the airlines did a good job of notifying passengers.
“According to the Federal Aviation Administration online flight status system (faa.gov) all east coast airports have reopened except for Teterboro (TEB) general aviation airport. Passengers headed to the east coast are advised to monitor the status of Tropical Storm Irene and check directly with their airlines for rescheduling, flight delays, and cancellations. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is experiencing normal operations,” an airport spokesperson said Monday morning.
