Flights returning to normal after snowstorm

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Airports in New York and Boston were ramping up service Sunday, as they attempted to return to normal operations following a massive snowstorm that crippled parts of the East Coast and led to thousands of flight delays and cancelations.

Boston's Logan Airport was the last to open, at 11 p.m. on Saturday.

Airlines said they expect to operate close-to-normal schedules on Sunday.

Even so, flight-tracking website FlightAware.com said about 350 flights were canceled as of Sunday afternoon. Only 10 are expected for Monday.

In all roughly 5,650 flights were canceled since Friday, when airports shut down in anticipation of the storm. Friday saw the most cancelations, according to FlightAware, with Saturday a close second. Airlines waived ticket-change fees for passengers in the affected areas.

Delta Air Lines said that as of Sunday morning flighs were back to normal. It canceled about 1,200 flights due to the storm.

Jetblue said flights are back to regular schedules in New York and will be in Boston by Monday.

Amtrak trains are running on a limited schedule between New York and Boston, after service was canceled Saturday.

Regional lines are still working to restore service. As of Sunday afternoon, Metro-North Railroad service between New Haven and Stamford, Conn., and on its branch lines remained suspended as train crews worked to clean as much as 4 feet of snow off the tracks, New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority said.

The Long Island Rail Road was back to "near-normal" weekend schedule, the MTA said.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said service on some subway and bus lines was resuming at about 2 p.m. Most commuter rail service should resume by Monday morning, the agency said on its website.

    Cardinal, leaders meet about NYPD-community relations

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
