Sandy shuts down 27 flights between LAX and East Coast
John F. Kennedy International Airport and La Guardia Airport in New York were closed early Wednesday morning, along with Caldwell-Wright Airport and Teterboro Airport in New Jersey, according to the Federal Aviation Administration's website.
In addition, weather conditions Wednesday morning were delaying flights from LAX to San Francisco by about two hours, the website said.
Passengers departing LAX and motorists picking up arriving passengers were advised to check with their airlines to verify flight schedules before coming to the airport, officials said in statement.
Officials also said the flight information, which is based on data collected at 9 p.m. Tuesday, could change at any time. The FAA website provides up-to-the-minute conditions at all U.S. airports. The status of flights at LAX is also available, subject to updates by airlines.
