Fed-up JetBlue fliers were fuming at New York’s JFK Airport on Monday after flight delays left hundreds of weekend passengers stranded in terminals overnight or on the tarmac for hours.
“I’ll never fly JetBlue again,” said New Mexico-bound Claudia Agun, who flew in from Turkey — and told The Post she had been sleeping in the departures area since Saturday on a red Turkish Airlines throw blanket because of flight snags.
Christopher Broderick said he had two flights to California canceled on him since he woke up at 3 a.m. for his planned trip Monday.
“I was going to say I would never fly JetBlue again, but we’ve not been able to fly JetBlue,” he quipped.
Airline passengers Sunday griped that they were held “hostage” in the airport’s terminals overnight since JetBlue refused to cancel their flights until the last minute amid weather delays.
UPDATE: Four people have since been released from the hospital after 11 people were initially hospitalized after inhaling dangerous amounts of carbon monoxide at the Hampton Inn in Marysville on Saturday. Read the full update on this story.
MARYSVILLE — Eleven people were transported from the Hampton Inn in Marysville in Union County to area hospitals Saturday night — including seven considered in critical condition — in what local officials are calling carbon monoxide poisoning.
Marysville Fire Chief Jay Riley said the exact source of the carbon monoxide was unclear as of late Saturday evening, but any potential sources had been shut off and the building was cleared of people.
All of the injured taken to hospitals had been in the pool area. Riley did not have ages of any of the victims immediately available, but said there were both children and adults.
Two others were treated at the scene, and five more later sought treatment on their own at Memorial Health Hospital in Marysville, Marysville Police Chief Tony Brooks said.
What happened at the Hampton Inn in Marysville, Ohio?
Brooks said the first call came into 911 about 5:30 p.m. that a 2-year-old girl had either fallen into the pool or was found in the pool unconscious at the hotel at 16610 Square Dr. More calls to authorities about unconscious people followed, with others reporting symptoms such as dizziness and a burning in the throat, Brooks said.
The Marysville Fire Department and Marysville Police called for help from multiple departments, and the hotel was evacuated. All the other guests and staff left on their own, officials said, and hotel management made accommodations to have them stay at other hotels.
Watch til the End, Drunk Racist Man and woman mad because he’s Gold Or Diamond Hilton member and therefore gets service before everyone else. Hotel staff just sitting by and letting the racist woman do whatever, mind you she already touched him prior #Karen#hiltonpic.twitter.com/tApFW53z2a
The Daily Dot has a synopsis of what occurred in the video:
The footage shows HL standing by a reception desk separated from the white couple by four people who appear to be hotel security guards.
“Y’all haven’t de-escalated the situation because she’s still right there talking,” King can be heard saying, referring to the white woman. “Y’all are supposed to separate the party.”
After some unintelligible shouting and arguing, the white woman broke apart from the staff and attacked HL, wrapping her hands around his head and pulling him away from the reception desk. He can be seen trying to break free from her hold, then he punched the white man. The white man fell to the ground and seemed to be knocked out.
The security guards then attempted to restrain the white woman. Meanwhile, King can be heard repeatedly calling out that “everything is on camera.” In the video, HL described the couple as “drunk” and “rude.”
The security guards’ efforts to subdue the white woman didn’t seem to work, and she came back into the video frame, pulling herself out of the guards’ grips. She approached her partner, who was still laying on the floor. Then she yanked off her purse and stomped back over to HL, who was still standing by the reception desk.
The white woman tried to attack HL again, but security guards pulled her away. Another staffer led HL away. HL shook his head without saying anything as he walked away, but King questioned why the white woman was able to continue rampaging.
“Where is y’all’s security?” he yelled. “Get her under control. Oh my god! I don’t understand this. This is crazy. Where’s y’all’s security? Because this is unacceptable. This is unacceptable.”
The white woman broke away from the guards again and tried moving toward HL again.
“And y’all still haven’t restrained her,” King yelled.
The guards seemed to be trying to pull the woman down a hallway as the video ended. After the incident, HL stated he wasn’t allowed to stay at the hotel that night.

A FACE mask row on a train sparked a massive brawl between furious passengers and left kids in tears. The fight broke out after a man wearing a white face mask started shouting at other passengers, “wear a mask”.
In footage of the scuffle, others start shouting back over the seats “You’re an embarrassment, you’re a f****** embarrassment.”
Fellow passengers on the train from York try to calm down the situation and saying “let’s think of the children” but the argument escalates to the point where people can be seen grappling over the train seats.
The man who went up and down the carriage then swings a punch towards a non-face mask-wearing passenger.
A woman and her granddaughter were kicked out of their hotel room in their pajamas after giving a bad review on Hotels.com. Dr. Susan Leger says she checked into the Baymont Hotel with her 6-year-old granddaughter for what was supposed to be a three-night stay.
They were settling down for the night, when Leger says she got an email asking her to rate the hotel, and she wrote a 3-star review. Within minutes, Leger says she got a call from the furious hotel manager telling her to leave.
The four victims are 78-year-old David Chelini, his two daughters, 46-year-old Karen Baker and 48-year-old Donna Chelini, and his nephew, 58-year-old Steven Chelini, authorities announced Monday.
The single-engine Beech V35 is registered to David Chelini, according to FAA records. He received his pilot’s license in 2010, though the sheriff’s office did not say who was piloting the plane.
The small aircraft crashed minutes after taking off from the Visalia Municipal Airport around 6:35 p.m. First responders initially had trouble locating the plane due to the darkness and heavy fog, Sgt. Jesse Cox said.
Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board and FAA are collecting debris and sifting through the wreckage to understand what went wrong. The crash left an “extensive field of wreckage” spanning about 500 feet, NTSB spokesperson Peter Knudson said.
The plane crashed in front of an orchard near Road 68 and Avenue 288, just west of the Visalia airport.
The cause of the deadly crash is unknown. Investigators are collecting material from the crash site and moving it to a secure location. That process is expected to conclude Tuesday, Knudson said. An initial report outlining what led up to the crash will follow in the coming weeks, he said.
Visibility was less than a mile at the time of the crash and potentially much lower in isolated pockets across the South Valley, according to the National Weather Service Hanford office. Weather conditions will factor into the investigator’s report.
