Hundreds of JetBlue (JBLU) passengers were stranded on the taxiways at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York for several hours (JFK).

Hundreds of inbound flights were unable to reach their gates on the evening of January 30, 2022. As a result, thousands of passengers were left waiting for their leaving planes in Terminal 5 of the airport.

Inclement weather, along with a staff shortage due to the Omicron rush, appeared to be the cause of the blunder.

JetBlue (JBLU) has previously canceled about 1,600 flights over the weekend in anticipation of the situation.

According to FlightAware, when the nor’easter snowfall slammed the Atlantic coast of the United States on January 28, 2021, more than 5,000 flights were forced to be canceled in several eastern hubs.

Over the course of the next two days, more than 1,500 flights were canceled in New York airports alone.
