Winter Storm Strands Travelers
Frustrated travelers were delayed or stuck at airports after a blizzard hit the East Coast. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
Furious air travelers, fed up over cancelled flights and long delays caused by the winter weather, chanted and banged on bins at an airport security checkpoint in Moscow.
In Cleveland, police had to be called when some fed-up passengers rushed a gate to try to get some satisfaction.
Fed-up air travelers are complaining that it's next to impossible to get anyone from the airlines on the phone. INSIDE EDITION tried ourselves, and had little success.
At Continental Airlines, no one at all was answering. Instead, a recording picked up citing the winter weather as the cause.
Calls to Delta resulted in the recording, "All circuits are busy, please try your call again later."
One call did get answered by American Airlines, but the agent said the only available seats were few and far between.
At the airports, there was yet another day of long lines as airlines struggled to clear the backlog.
Some travelers stranded in New York chose to rent cars rather than wait for long-delayed or cancelled flights.
INSIDE EDITION staffers were stranded all over the country trying to get back to work.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is still taking heat over the delays in plowing the city's streets.
INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent found a sign on a tree in Staten Island reading, "Stay Away DSNY!! We did it ourselves. Thanks Mayor Bloomberg for NOTHING!!!"
DSNY, the Department of Sanitation New York, is responsible for clearing the roads. Strangely enough, the sign was posted on a tree belonging to the Department of Sanitation commissioner's next door neighbor.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is under fire for continuing his vacation at Disney World while the state digs out from the blizzard.
Making Christie look worse is a YouTube video of fellow New Jersey politician Cory Booker, the mayor of Newark, putting his back into the clean-up effort. He helped clear sidewalks the old-fashioned way, with a shovel.
