American Airlines flight with mechanical issue returns to JFK

American Airlines flight with mechanical issue returns to JFK

Singapore Airlines arranged transportation for the 325 passengers, a spokesperson told CNBC, and the plane itself is scheduled for a short flight back to JFK before heading to Germany. Passengers had to wait for stairs to be set up to exit the plane. Ground transportation was then arranged for the affected passengers to NY.

Singapore Airlines Flight 26, flying from Frankfurt, Germany to New York City, landed at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor - 80 miles north of its intended destination, according to CNBC.

The bomb cyclone, a powerful winter storm which theverge.com described as acting "a bit like a snowy hurricane", yesterday forced Caribbean Airlines Ltd (CAL) to cancel four flights.

The airline said the plane returned due to a possible mechanical issue.

Then the plane, which is used on some of the longest worldwide routes, will fly a very short route: from Stewart to JFK, according to the spokesman for Singapore Airlines said it wasn't clear how long that would take, but business-jet operators estimate the flight time on a small jet at about 30 minutes.

The American Airlines flight had just taken off from the Queens airport when the report was made, sources said.
