A woman was left in tears and stranded after she was denied the privilege of attending her own wedding due to flight cancellation.
A small airline abruptly canceled its flights from JFK to Guyana in South America on Saturday morning, leaving about 1,000 travelers stranded at the Queens airport, New York Post reports.
That decision left a bride-to-be stranded and in tears as she missed her own wedding due to cancellation. Leezel Cambridge, 27, a bride-to-be who missed her own wedding because of an unexplained snafu in the 2 a.m. flight couldn’t stop crying. She was supposed to be on the Dynamic International Airways but due to the incident, things turned out bad.
Her husband had to tell their 300 guests, who were already waiting at their venue, that she wouldn’t be making it.
“I had to cancel it,” she said of her nuptials.
She spent Sunday — which was supposed to be her wedding day — curled up on the airport’s floor with her wedding dress and 15 of her family members.
She’s not the only bride who had some unexpected wedding stress caused by the sudden flight cancellation Saturday. Francine Bascom, a 24-year-old Brooklyn mom, missed her newborn’s christening Sunday and may have to cancel her wedding next weekend because of the travel nightmare.
“I should be in Guyana happy and bouncing around,” she fumed to The Post. “But I’m in New York p—-d off.”
The discount airline initially told passengers the cancellation was because there was something wrong with the plane’s wing, but it has since canceled three flights, which make up all of the airline’s service to Guyana.
On Sunday around 6 p.m., a charter bus arrived to take passengers to a nearby hotel for the night. The airline did not respond to requests for comment.
