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
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
