SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Bad weather along the east coast is disrupting more travel plans as the Presidents Week holiday draws towards a close.

Syracuse's Hancock Airport has seen cancellations and delays on flights to several east coast cities such as New York, Philadelphia and Charlotte.

About a dozen flights headed to New York City airports ended up landing at Hancock Airport after being diverted.

A charter flight for Sun Country airline from Minneapolis to JFK was forced to land at Syracuse. Passengers aboard that flight were demanding that they be allowed to go to the terminal, rather than sit on the tarmac. They were told, at that point, their flight would be ending at Syracuse if they chose to go to the terminal, and most did.

The plane flew back to Minneapolis with 8 to 10 passengers remaining aboard.

More than a hundred others stayed in Syracuse. Most were renting cars to finish their trip to New York City. They'll have to wait a while for their luggage, though. It was still on the plane, headed back to Minneapolis.
