Travel slowly resuming in Northeast

NEW YORK (AP) - The magic words winter-weary travelers had been waiting to see for days have started showing up on departure boards at New York's LaGuardia airport -- "on time."
But even though flights have slowly resumed at the city's three major airports, travel experts warn it will take several days to rebook passengers who had their plans disrupted because of the East
Coast blizzard.
After some 1,500 flights were canceled at Newark Liberty, JFK and LaGuardia airports, thousands of passengers turned the facilities into makeshift hotels -- sleeping on benches and chairs
and begging for flights.
One Texas woman who was finally heading home after spending two nights in a New York hotel with her daughter says she doesn't know if she ever wants to go on vacation again.
