Serious delays at NE airports

By Washington Post Editors

6:45 p.m. Update: The latest delays: Newark, 4 hours, 15 minutes; JFK, 6 hours, 51 minutes.

5 p.m. Update: JetBlue is canceling all of its flights at JFK after 8 p.m. The airline said on its Web site "that field conditions in New York City and Boston continue to be poor and additional cancellations are likely to occur."

The airline plans to add more phone lines and people to handle the calls but expect delays in getting through to be rebooked. JetBlue said all scheduled flights are full.

4:15 p.m. Update: Here is the current lineup of notable delays for flights destined to Northeast airports:
JFK: 6 hours, 51 minutes.
La Guardia: 55 minutes.
Newark: 4 hours, 15 minutes.

Original post: All of the major airports in the Northeast are now open, but the Federal Aviation Administration is reporting massive delays at some of them. Arriving flights at JFK are experiencing delays of more than five and a half hours. At Newark Liberty it's even worse, with delays of more than eight hours.

Check with your airline to see if your travel plans may be affected and what rules are in place if you do need to change your flight.
