Virgin Atlantic Passengers Stranded at JFK

Passengers on a Virgin Atlantic flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to London had to sit on the tarmac for about six hours on Monday during a snowstorm before being stuck back at the terminal — with absolutely nowhere to go, NBC News reported. "There's nothing to drink, nothing to eat. It's a disaster," said Alexis Dehasse, a music producer who was aboard Flight VS4 to London, which was supposed to take off at 6:30 p.m. but dumped passengers back at the gate past midnight after dealing with de-icing and a sick passenger. Virgin Atlantic said staff were "doing everything we can to ensure passenger comfort during this time." There were 7,000 flights delayed and cancelled throughout the Northeast because of blizzard conditions.
