Hurricane Sandy causes a major standstill of flights to and from Europe. Thousands of flights have been canceled at airports across the continent. Monday, all flights from Paris to Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. have been scrapped. In Brussels, Belgium, ten daily flights typically depart to the U.S., only two were scheduled Monday. At Germany's largest airport in Frankfurt, about a dozen flights were grounded.
What's worse - stranded passengers could be stuck Tuesday as well. "A number of airlines have already decided to cancel their flights to the U.S. tomorrow," says Jan Van der Cruysse/ Brussels Airport Spokesman. "Others have decided to wait and decide only by the end of this day because they would love to operate it anyway. So we will see by the end of the day. We are going to try and make a roundup to see what is flying and what is not."
