    Flights resuming at Washington-area airports

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal officials say flights are resuming with minimal delays at Washington-area airports, which took a glancing blow from Hurricane Irene.
    New York-area airports remain closed as Irene passed over the nation's busiest air-traffic region.
    The longer that Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark, New Jersey, airports remain shuttered, the worse it will be as travel delays ripple across the country. Federal officials said Sunday they didn't know when the airports would reopen.
    Airlines have already canceled thousands of flights for Sunday, but it was unclear how much havoc the storm would cause for travelers on Monday.
    Weather officials downgraded Irene from a hurricane to a tropical storm Sunday as the storm's winds lost speed.

    Irene's Done in NYC, but Air Travel Still Stalled

    Aug 28 2011 12:53pm EDT
    Now that Irene has made her way through New York City and batters New England, here's a quick rundown of the state of play for airports and air travel.
    All five New York airports run by the Port Authority—John F. Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark, Stewart and Teterboro—will remain closed. Long Island/McArthur will be closed. Philadelphia will stay closed until at least 4pm Sunday. Other airports—Hartford, Boston/Logan, Providence/T.F.Green, Manchester/Boston Regional—will be as good as closed. The Boston area rapid transit system will be mostly closed.

    Rocker to pilot 'hurricane' flight

    Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson will pilot one of the first flights out of New York following Hurricane Irene, his spokesman said.The rocker, who has had a pilot's licence for years, regularly flies for charter airline Astraeus.
    He will fly around 200 passengers from Newark, New Jersey to Reykjavik for budget airline Iceland Express.
    The Boeing 757 will be painted in Iron Maiden colours as it is the same plane used by the band during their seven-month world tour, which ended just over three weeks ago.

    Britons stranded after Irene pounds US

    Tuesday 30 August 2011
    Airlines tell Channel 4 News they are putting on extra flights to clear the backlog after thousands of British passengers were left stranded in the US in the wake of Hurricane Irene.
    Around 9,000 flights, both domestic and international, were cancelled across the east coast as several states were pounded by Hurricane Irene.
    More than 40 people have been killed, many by falling trees and debris




    .
    Dozens of flights bound for Britain were cancelled when major airports, including New York's JFK and Newark, were forced to close.
    The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) estimates between 5,000 and 10,000 Britons are stranded in New York alone.
    The Foreign Office is advising passengers to contact their tour operator or airline before travelling.
    According to the Federal Aviation Administration all airports on the east coast of the US are now open with the exception of Teterboro which is due to open on Tuesday.
    A spokesperson for British Airways told Channel 4 News the company is using bigger planes where possible and putting on two extra flights from the US to the UK to clear the backlog.
    The spokesperson said there are no problems for people travelling across the Atlantic in the opposite direction.
    He urged any passengers whose flights were cancelled over the weekend to call BA to arrange alternative travel.
    Photo gallery: Irene batters US east coast Virgin Atlantic told Channel 4 News it is operating a full flying schedule to and from the east coast of the United States.
    A spokesperson said: "Additional seats will also be made available to ensure that the backlog of passengers away from home is cleared as soon as possible."
    On 29 August Virgin put on an extra flight from Heathrow to New York's JFK. It is sending another flight to New York on Tuesday to fill with returning passengers on Wednesday.
    It estimates that around 180 people are stuck in New York without a confirmed rebooking.
    Passengers who have incurred extra costs caused by a cancelled flight from the US should contact their airlines.
    The British Airways website says in the event of cancellation or delays "the operating carrier will provide hotel accommodation if necessary and provide transport between the airport and place of accommodation.
    "Passengers will be advised of the arrangements for obtaining refreshments, transport and hotel accommodation, by the carrier."
    A statement on the Virgin Atlantic website said: "Passengers who are away from home can reclaim reasonable hotel and meal costs while they wait for their new flight to depart."
