JetBlue Cancels Flights
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
The business news starts with a holiday for Wall Street. U.S. financial markets are closed today for President's Day. They will reopen tomorrow. On Friday, the Dow had its third consecutive record-high close. The blue chip index was up 2.5 points for a gain of nearly 187 points on the week.
JetBlue would like to have a better week this week than it did last week. Officials say they hope the airline will be fully operational tomorrow. Today they're canceling almost a quarter of JetBlue's flights. The airline is still trying to recover from a Valentine's Day snowstorm that left some passengers stranded on planes for up to 10 hours.
