J.F.K. Airport Plagued by Delays After Winter Storm

On Friday night, an Air France flight spent nearly six hours on the tarmac after arriving at Kennedy, passengers said.“Communication was horrible,” Amy Veinoglou, 29, who was traveling from Paris with her fiancé, said in a phone interview on Saturday. “Nobody was telling us anything.”Ms. Veinoglou said Air France had transferred them to a shuttle bus where they sat for 45 minutes. Even then, she said, it was “complete chaos.”“One bus cut us off and let off their people, and then our bus driver had to do all this maneuvering around and there was no one there to direct him,” Ms. Veinoglou said.They waited for hours amid empty luggage carousels that some passengers used as makeshift beds. Eventually, she and her fiancé gave up and headed home around 7:30 a.m. after spending nearly nine hours at the airport.The baggage claim area inside Terminal 4 around noon on Saturday was a field of unclaimed luggage, with tagged bags, duffels, suitcases and other containers in the center of the floor, along the walls and on a pair of carousels that turned slowly in front of bleary-looking travelers.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Boy Playing With Stove Caused Bronx Fire That Killed 12

A Bronx fire that killed 12 people was caused by a 3-year-old boy playing with the burners on a stove, the authorities said on Friday.“It seems like a horrible, tragic accident,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on WNYC radio.The blaze, which killed four children in the five-story building at 2363 Prospect Avenue in Belmont, was the city’s deadliest in more than a quarter-century. It made December the deadliest month for fires in New York City in a decade, said Daniel A. Nigro, the city fire commissioner.The boy playing with the stove in a first-floor apartment screamed when the fire began, sending his mother rushing into the kitchen as it filled with smoke and flames, Mr. Nigro said. She ran out of the apartment with the boy and a 2-year-old child, but left the door open, allowing fire to shoot out of the kitchen and into the stairwell, Mr. Nigro said.“Fire travels up,” Mr. Nigro said. “The stairway acted like a chimney.”The passageway filled with smoke and flames, blocking some people from running downstairs and killing others who tried. When firefighters arrived, about three minutes after the first 911 calls, as many as 20 people were scurrying down the fire escape, Mr […]

_____From the LeftPhotoA protest against the F.C.C. move was held in downtown Manhattan last week.Credit Sam Hodgson for The New York TimesVanessa A. Bee in Current Affairs: “There is a little-discussed alternative even better than the net neutrality status quo — a true public option!” “Even if you believe in competition and the free market generally,” writes Ms. Bee, “it’s really not a thing here.” People aren’t able to switch internet service providers easily, which explains part of the reason so many of these companies are regional monopolies. The solution, she suggests, is for state and local governments to form their own service providers and “provide faster and cheaper internet on the basis of net neutrality principles.” Read more »Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyGet the Morning Briefing by EmailWhat you need to know to start your day, delivered to your inbox Monday through Friday.Thank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
