As the northeast United States continues to suffer from life-threatening winds and rains from Hurricane Sandy, airlines canceled more flights headed from Israel across the Atlantic on Tuesday.

El Al's morning flight LY-007 to New York City had been cancelled, as was that of United Airlines – UA-085 to Newark. Both US Airways and United Airlines cancelled their respective Tuesday evening flights – US-797 and UA-091 – to Philadelphia and Newark.

United Airlines announced that the company would be suspending all flights on Tuesday to and from New York, Newark and Washington, D.C. airports, and went so far as to cancel those going in and out of Cleveland and Chicago.

All United passengers booked on the cancelled flights will be able to reschedule their plans at no cost before November 7, the company announced. El Al made a similar announcement, stressing that passengers would incur no flight change fees.
