My girlfriend is finally arriving from London tomorrow. However, there's the impending snowstorm ahead, and British Airways has stated they are flying tomorrow. Here's my question. Does the flight still land at JFK or does it get diverted or cancelled altogether?

If JFK remains closed no planes will be allowed to land expect in dire emergency. An airlines' flight plan, will have two or three alternate airports to divert to. Most flights are on approach about 300 miles from their destination and it would be at that point where decisions about landing are made. I would hate to hazard a guess where a flight will land in this storm, but it normally has to be an airport not affected by the storm and can land lots of plans quickly and handle wide bodies — it might be 1000 miles away - I remember once flying to Denver and being diverted to SFO

Hi ,

MERRY CHRISTMAS, i have an international flight on
monday 27th dec at 9:00 clock ,i request you to let me know will the flight be canceeled as for snow it will be finished till then .

thanking you

My son and his group of 40 are flying international tomorrow at 6 - can/will the flight be cancelled due to the snow? We are all very worried. If you answer, thanks and Merry Christmas...

Please check with your airlines. Or you could google a website I found personally very helpful. Google JFK Airport arriving and departing flight and it gives you flight times of arrival and departure and status of the flight.

You will have to follow up with your sons airlines for updates.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas-i asked another follow up below--better to check bags in detroit with delta all the way to cairo thru JFK? Thanks again

My wife and daughter will be at JFK for 5 hours (4pm to 9pm) wiating for a connecting flight. Any suggestions on things to do at JFK during the 5 hours?

Play games counting the other frustrated passengers? You will run out of fingers! Drink, eat, nap, drink, eat, nap, etc. Good luck!

We want to wish Merry Christmas to all people on this board ; to thank for the hard work of the creators of this board; to our spectacular professionals BG and MS who relentlessly answer the questions of JFK passengers.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!!!


Sorry, thhis is in regards to the comment below.I need direct numbers at JFK. I will be calling from Italy. THANKS

Thanks JFK employee. I hope it works. Really frustrating, you know. You are super to take time to answer on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas.......

We just checked - it is probably the same number with an answering machine; it won't help you any better. Let us have an e-mail address(temporarily preferable)so we can try to help you locate the item.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Did you try (718) 704-2144 ?

I flew Delta to Rome on Dec 20th. My luggage was not put on the plane. Was told that because it was now unaccompanied luggage it would have to put in baggage hold of 24 hours for security reasons and then would be put on the next flight to FCO ad would arrive on the Friday, Dec 24th AM arrival. Guess what!!! No luggage and the Rome Delta employess can not find it and have given me a few unbelievable reasons. Bottom line is they don't really care.

I need a direct # to the baggage hold area so I can ask them to please check my tag number to see if it is still there. Please no automated system. Been there already.
