Rebooking delays extended by packed planes

Frustrated air travelers are caught in a series of storms that have canceled thousands of flights and stranded people as planes were already so full they don't have enough empty seats to get everyone home before the next round hits.

'It's the rat-a-tat, one after another," said George Hobica, the founder of AirFareWatchDog.com. "It's a cumulative effect."

The latest storm caused JetBlue on Monday to announce a phased-in shutdown of its operations in Boston and New York.
