Over 18,000 Flights Grounded Due to Sandy

Superstorm Sandy, as it is now being hailed, has caused the grounding of more than 18,000 flights across the northeastern U.S. and around the world, stranding hundreds of thousands of travellers.  It might take days for travel to get back to normal as the northeastern states clean up and take stock after the storm moves out.  FlightAware, a flight tracking service, just on Tuesday 7000 flights were cancelled.


Delays due to the flight cancellations have had a ripple effect across the U.S. all the way to the west coast and cities such as San Francisco and even passengers as far away as Europe and Asia have been stuck.  New York’s three big airports were closed due to the storm, which caused a large majority of the flight cancellations.  As of Tuesday, it was not certain whether any of the New York airports would reopen on Wednesday.
