Logan Airport:Logan Airport Arrivals:Cancellation notices were sprawled across the monitors at Logan Airport on Saturday, but the powerful storm hitting the East Coast still had its upsides.
“Business is kind of busy right now, which is kind of good,” said Mike Montelongo, who was tending shop at Brookstone. “It’s usually dead, but right now we have a lot of people coming in and out buying stuff to keep them warm and comfortable while they’re in the airport.”
Foot traffic was high at Logan all afternoon, but many passengers hoping to beat the storm found that flights along the mid-Atlantic states were canceled.
“I actually don’t have a flight,” said one woman. “I was supposed to be flying out of Providence today to Dulles, but that got canceled, so I’m trying to get a new one.”
The storm, which reached Massachusetts in the evening, is expected to push back flights throughout the weekend, and transportation officials said the air traffic backup could stretch into Monday morning.
Travelers were advised to contact their airline or check airport listings before heading to Logan. In anticipation of the storm, several airlines also scaled back the number of flights they were operating over the weekend at the request of state officials.
Behind the counter at Brookstone, another employee tried to lighten the spirits of a grounded passenger.
“Have a good day and enjoy your stay at Boston Logan Airport,” he said, handing the woman her change.
“Yah, right,” she replied. “The sooner I can get out of here the better.
