Flooding from a water main break forced the temporary suspension of some flights at New York'sJohn F. Kennedy International Airport on Sunday, adding to the misery of travellers after a winter storm cancelled or delayed hundreds of flights in recent days.
The pipe break sent about three inches (eight centimeters) of water gushing onto the floor of the terminal. Indeed, the delays reportedly continued, and that was before the water main broke in Terminal 4.
It's not yet clear what caused the water main to break, but the wet bags and resulting flight delays - including a shutdown of global flights to Terminal 4 - were just the latest misfortune to strike JFK passengers over the past three days. While the water main break appeared to be weather-related, Cotton said officials would examine whether "any other failures" contributed to the problem. Some worldwide flights destined for Terminal 4 were diverted or accommodated at other JFK terminals. Almost 50 flights were canceled and more than 300 delayed by Sunday afternoon, according to FlightAware. Flights headed to NY were forced to turn back, and connecting flights that were only supposed to bring passengers to NY for a brief stay were grounded indefinitely.
The flooding shut down part of Terminal 4, suspending worldwide flights to the terminal Sunday evening. Video on social media showed water pouring out of the ceiling, eventually leading to the terminal being closed and forcing the Port Authority to divert inbound flights to other terminals for several hours.
Flight tracking website Flight Aware reportedJFK Airport had 621 delays and 106 cancellations January 7.
In other odd John F. Kennedy Airport news, an American Airlines flight that departed on Friday afternoon was forced to return immediately after takeoff.
The Port Authority will review airport operations from the start of the winter weather, through the "inability" of worldwide flights being able to arrive at gates in a timely manner into Monday. Baggage carousels stopped moving, arriving flights were diverted, and entire sections of the arrivals terminal were roped off while staff cleared the water.
The agency added that they ramped up staffing and begun utilizing shuttle buses "to bring passengers experiencing delays back to the terminals".
The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said a water pipe that feeds the terminal's sprinkler system broke around 2 p.m.
"There's still like a hundred people waiting for their luggage", he told AFP.
"We intend to identify what went wrong, why it went wrong, where there were failures of communication and coordination, and we intend to fix it", said Cotton. "I'm exhausted, man", she said, in about the only sentence that could be printed without obscenities. Officials say there aren't enough gates to handle the backlog of rescheduled flights.
Global airlines have committed to have baggage reunited by passengers in New York City by Tuesday morning, said Cotton. And you can't tell me when I'm going to get home.
