Snowstorm still affecting passengers at Bradley Airport Friday

Some airlines are waiving change and cancellation fees

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) – The snowstorm might be over but the impact is still felt at Bradley International Airport Friday.bdl-c

It was Deja Vu for hundreds of passengers at Bradley International Airport on Friday, who packed their bags and got their tickets for the second time in less than 24-hours.

Hundreds of passengers were left stranded in Connecticut Thursday, after a fast-moving storm dumped more than a foot of snow on parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut, leading to widespread cancellations across the board.

More than 60% of flights into and out of Bradley were canceled Thursday.

Cosmo Prinbeck is one of hundreds of passengers who changed their flights to Friday after being part of those cancellations. Prinbeck told 22News, he’s just relieved that this time around, he’ll be able to board his flight. “Fortunately in this case, it wasn’t a big deal, it was ok. It left my wife and kid’s home without me, but it was ok to spend another night,” he said.

At least 11 flights scheduled to leave Bradley International Airport were cancelled on Friday. Kyle Dean of Connecticut was supposed to be on one of those flights. “My flight at 9:00 this morning was canceled, and I got rebooked on a different flight. I’ll be going through some different cities, and getting in a couple of hours later.”

Dean also said when Mother Nature’s at fault, there’s only one thing you can really do. “Just roll with the punches,” he said.

Many airlines are waiving their change and cancellation fees for flights that were canceled on Thursday or Friday.
