Inside The Valentine's Day JetBlue Nightmare

WABC in New York has an excellent report about the Valentines Day JFK nightmare that contains audio of the grounded pilots communicating with the air traffic controllers.

For some reason, JFK stayed open even though no planes could take off in the ice storm. The back up got so bad that the controllers were literally yelling at the JetBlue pilots because the pilots had nowhere to park and were just sitting in the way of incoming planes.

ABC 7 also reports that in June JFK airport had 150 flights where passengers sat on the tarmac for at least 3 hours.
