Sandy still making a mess of things ... Langdon Hall makes top 15 in world hotels
Things are looking up as far as the Hurricane/Tropical Storm goes. But not for everyone.
I got a note from Air Canada at 6 p.m. Tuesday to say that, "Following the re-opening of the following airports in the U.S. northeast, Air Canada and Air Canada Express will resume their normal schedule of flights beginning Wednesday October 31 to/from: Philadelphia, Boston, Washington National, Washington Dulles Baltimore, Harrisburg PA, Providence RI and Hartford CT.
"However, pending resumption of airport operations at New York City area airports: LaGuardia, Newark and J.F. Kennedy, flights to and from these three airports remain suspended until further notice," officials said.
To facilitate rebooking for affected customers, change fees have been waived for flights to/from US northeast airports until Wednesday October 31, and to/from New York City area airports until Friday November 2, Air Canada said. "Customers are strongly encouraged to consult the latest information online at
aircanada.com and rebook themselves online using our self-service rebooking tool in order to avoid longer call centre wait times."
Air Canada’s domestic Canada and international flights continue to operate normally.
Porter flights were cancelled to and from US northeast today as were WestJet flights to LaGuardia.
I got a note at 6:20 p.m. Eastern time to say that WestJet has cancelled all flights tomorrow to New York/LaGuardia because of the continued closure of the airport. The first two flights on Thursday, Nov. 1 also were cancelled, officials told me.Guest have received notifications by phone and email and we will continue to accommodate these guests as they require until we can get them up and on their way, WestJet said.
It's not just the airports, of course. Due to treacherous road conditions, some folks are finding it hard to even make their way to the airport, let alone hop on a flight.
