NEW YORK (AP) - Passengers on three flights arriving at New
York's Kennedy Airport say they spent hours on the tarmac waiting
A passenger on one Cathay Pacific flight says travelers were
still on one plane at 1:15 p.m. nearly eight hours after landing.
Travelers on another Cathay Pacific flight say they waited 10
hours on the tarmac before leaving the plane Tuesday morning.
Cathay Pacific did not return calls seeking comment.
A British Airways flight spent more than seven hours overnight
on the tarmac. Airline spokesman John Lampl says the flight had to
wait for an open gate.
A spokesman for the agency that oversees the area's airports
says Kennedy is pulling workers off snow removal duty to help the
plane that still has passengers on it.
