Hurricane Sandy: Few flight cancellations at Bob Hope Airport

Jet Blue canceled two New York-bound flights from Bob Hope Airport on Monday as Hurricane Sandy pummeled the Eastern Seaboard.

Flight 350 and 358 to John F. Kennedy International Airport were canceled, as were flights 355 and 359 coming out of New York, Victor Gill, a spokesman for Bob Hope Airport, said in an email.

Jet Blue also canceled Flight 350 to JFK on Tuesday.

Scores more flights – about 130 – had been canceled at Los Angeles International Airport as of Monday, The Times reported. Officials warned that additional flights could be affected by the super storm, which was expected to force more than 60 of those cancellations Monday. The others came Sunday.

Many of the flights were into New York City's JFK airport, although airports were affected all along the East Coast, according to a breakdown provided by LAX.

American Airlines had the most Monday cancellations, with about 15. United and Continental had 10 each.
