Winter storm up north causes headaches for Orlando passengers


A winter storm in the northeast has canceled almost 8,000 flights nationwide, and the storm’s effects are being felt by travelers at Orlando International Airport.

With 60 million people in the massive storm’s path, each of the major airlines has grounded all flights to New York City.

The cancellations had parts of OIA looking more like a slumber party than an airport.

Among those sleeping in a terminal was traveler Mayker Campous, who said he would wake up every five to 10 minutes before dozing off again because he was sleeping in a chair.

“We (slept) here all night because our flight was canceled,” he said.

Campous said he hopes to depart on time Wednesday.

Some airlines have waived fees or offered vouchers for the inconvenience.

JetBlue said it will waive change/cancellation fees and pay for fare differences for customers departing from a list of cities affected by the storm, including New York City, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Boston.

JetBlue customers have until Sunday to rebook their flights. They may opt for a refund if their flight was canceled, the company said.

Not all airlines are as accommodating, passengers said, so officials said customers should contact individual airlines to ask if anything is being offered.
