Twenty plus hours sitting in a dark airplane??? Just be happy you were not traveling through JFK airport lately…well, let’s hope you were not!
An afternoon water main break suspended inbound international flights, and exacerbated an already chaotic situation at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday.
On top of it, the power had to be turned off — cutting lights and heat to same part of the airport affected by the main break late in the afternoon.
Terminal 4 had finally reopened by 8 p.m. and flights had resumed with delays. But in all on Sunday, there were 352 delays and 46 cancellations at JFK.
“I’m so angry words can’t even express how I feel right now,” Bill Carver from Austin, Texas said.
“I was on the plane for a good 20 hours,” frustrated traveller Michelle Lopez said told CBS2’s Reena Roy. “They took us out once to eat, then we went back to the plane.” – CBS New York
