WOODBURY - All runways have reopened at area airports after Sunday's blizzard, but it could still take days to get stranded passengers out of the terminals.
John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport reported some flight departure cancellations today. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey reported 92 flight cancellations at JFK and 24 at LaGuardia.
Officials say that although runways are open and planes are flying, most airlines are fully booked.
Linda Delgado and her family are desperately trying to get to Austin, Texas, to see her sick mother. Delgado says she called ahead to LaGuardia Airport to make sure her flight was leaving on time, but when she arrived, it turned out her flight was canceled because the crew was tired.
Alex Makris has been stuck at LaGuardia Airport since Sunday and says he's disappointed with New York City's response to the storm.
"I think New York being the grandest metropolis in the world should be a little more organized and shouldn't give up so easily," he says.
Airport officials say that close to 10,000 flights in the Northeast have been canceled since the beginning of the blizzard.
