Airport delays plague Northeast

By Associated Press

4:11 p.m. Update: Airports in the New York area have reopened. However, the FAA reports that there are delays at many airports in the Northeast. Some arriving flights are being delayed more than 90 minutes.

Original post: Heavy snow has forced the closure of two major New York-area airports.

The Federal Aviation Administration Web site says Newark Liberty International is expected to reopen to flights at noon Thursday. Kennedy airport is expected to open at 10 a.m. Thursday.

La Guardia Airport remains open, but with some delays.

The New York area received up to 18 inches of snow.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the three airports, is hoping to avoid the situation that accompanied an even bigger storm on Dec. 26. Then, flights were backed up for days.
