A friend of mine has a place at SR and was up there last weekend, yesterday included. As she put it about yesterday, she had about 1/2" of ice to chip off her car just to get into it and then a semi flooded, quickly changing over to frozen parking lot, to also deal with before she even started her drive back home to CT yesterday :eek:

I am sure it will be hard today but they tend to recover quickly. The bumps and glades will definitely not be in the cards until it warms up a little like this weekend.

Explain. Was it because they grounded flights due to the weather? You could not reschedule? They just flat out cancelled you? Hope you get out there to use the pass.

Sorry I heard they cancelled their flights because if the cold. Don't places in Canada get this cold and they fly air planes?

Love flying jetblue for the most part, but when JFK has delays the whole system can get messed up.

That sucks, especially when going on Vacation.

My bosses JetBlue flight to Florida on Saturday was canceled too, he just got out this morning. It's his first and probably last JetBlue experience!

I've got reservations to Mexico on JetBlue in March , I hope I don't have problems too.

Generally speaking, this has a lot more to do with weather at the airports than the airline itself. I know during the last storm JFK was closed entirely for more than an hour because the runways "were like skating rinks". Snow is manageable for the aviation industry, but the freezing rain and icing conditions wreak havoc on an airplane's airworthiness and thus the airlines' schedules. Blame Mother Nature, not JetBlue.

Other airlines did not do what JetBlue did

Jet Blue's flights are pretty heavily concentrated in the NorthEast where other carriers have hubs in other locations. It hit JB harder than the others. Of course that doesn't really matter to all the people who had flights canceled.
