Flights to the US have been cancelled as America's east coast braces itself for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy (AP)
Passengers are facing travel chaos as America's east coast braces itself for Hurricane Sandy. BA and Virgin Atlantic flights to New York, Washington and Boston have been cancelled, with journeys to Baltimore and Philadelphia also affected.
A state of emergency has been declared along the east coast ahead of the arrival of Sandy, which is expected to bring winds of 75mph and has been nicknamed "Frankenstorm" by US media. The disruption highlights the importance of taking out
travel insurance, with those who were planning to travel on Monday being given the chance to rebook or get a refund.
It is feared the disruption may last for several days. Virgin Atlantic has already cancelled flights to New York on Tuesday morning, with a spokesman insisting the "number one priority" was the safety of passengers and crew. He said the airline was liaising with local authorities to assess the situation and minimise disruption for travellers.
