JetBlue is shutting down all flights at Kennedy, LaGuardia, Newark and Boston airports until Tuesday to catch up after bad weather forced major delays over the weekend.
A spokeswoman told NBC 4 New York the airline needs to halt service to recover from the backup.
All JetBlue operations at those airports will end by 5 p.m. Monday and start resuming at 10 a.m. Tuesday, with full service expected to be up and running by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, the airline said.
"This plan allows for 17 hours of rest for our equipment and crew members and time to service aircraft," JetBlue said.
"We regret the impact to our customers," the airline said.
Bradley Airport is not among the airlines where flights are calncelled, but Kevin Dillon, executive director of the Connecticut Airport Authority, said the airport is still waiting on guidance from JetBlue and the airport will be impacted.
