Water Pipe Break Delays Flights At JFA Airport Terminal

The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said Monday it will investigate the water pipe break that added to the weather-related delays at the airport and will "hold all responsible parties accountable".

There was more misery for those trying to get through JFK Airport in New York Sunday as a water main break forced the closure of Terminal 4 and took with it 38 gates, majority used for global flights. Authorities are investigating the cause of the break, which occurred just before 2 p.m. local time.

Global arrivals to Terminal 4 were suspended earlier, with passengers who were already arrived being taken to other terminals for processing. That sent approximately three inches of water into the terminal's west end. Departures were not impacted. "We are asking customers to call their carriers for updates on flight information".

Worldwide flights flying into Terminal 4 were halted after a water main broke and soaked a baggage claim area, CNN reported.

"Airlines remain in recovery mode, rebooking passengers from cancelled flights and reuniting passengers with their luggage", the Port Authority said in a statement on Sunday.

The gridlock was particularly bad at Delta Air Lines' worldwide hub at Terminal 4 along with Terminal 1, which is used by overseas carriers such as Air France and Japan Airlines. Hundreds of bags have been lined up, CNN reported, with travelers sleeping next to their suitcases.

The meltdown on Sunday, two days after the year's first major snowstorm, forced passengers to deal with long lines to rebook cancelled flights and to search through mountains of luggage for their bags - if they could get into JFK at all.

Abrams video showed water on the ground in the arrivals area of the terminal and the chaos as travelers attempted a mass exodus from the airport.
