It also spilled onto the road outside and froze over. Incoming flights to Terminal 4 were shut down for several hours.

January 06-Hourslong delays continue to plague some travelers at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday morning, a day after flights resumed at the major transit hub in the wake of a powerful winter storm, complaints posted to social media indicate.

Rick Cotton, executive director of the Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which manages the airport, said at a news conference that the pipe fed a sprinkler system in a privately operated terminal.

The Port Authority called the delays "unacceptable".

The problem has been now been fixed.

First a "bomb cyclone" stranded some travelers for days. Arrivals at Terminal 4 have reopened as of 7:45 p.m. yesterday, but there are, of course, those residual delays to deal with.

Many UK travellers due to fly home with Norwegian were affected by the storms. Due to bad weather, all flights were cancelled.

As an example, Mr. Rabinowitz cited Iberia Flight 6253, which got halfway to NY from Madrid before making a U-turn and going back to Spain: an eight-hour fight to nowhere.

The airport on Twitter advised travellers to check with their airlines before arriving. No one was injured and all the passengers got off safely, with the Kuwait Airways passengers taken to hotels until they could be rebooked, the airline said. On Sunday, the airline still had 52 percent of its flights delayed, with cancellations dropping to 9 percent.

She described the experience as "a nightmare".

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey, which operates the airport, is being blamed for a breakdown in communication. Since the airport had to make room for an extra day's worth of planes while operating its normal schedule, many Thursday flights had trouble finding open gates. Flights later resumed but with delays, it said. Departing global flights continued, but with delays, as were domestic arrivals and departures from T4, also with delays.

Carlos Koester, 52, was in NY for a week with his wife and two teens and just wanted to get home to Brazil.

The trouble began when a winter storm blasted NY and snarled air travel on Thursday. As a result, travelers sat on the runway for as many as nine hours while waiting to de-board their flights.

Meanwhile 38 of the scheduled departing flight between 6am and 11.59am are now delayed, and a further nine have been cancelled.
