Icelandair cancelled flights from Boston and New York to Reykjavík today due to Hurricane Sandy (aka Frankenstorm), which is expected to hit the east coast this afternoon.
The cancellation may inconvenience Americans visiting Iceland for the Airwaves music festival, which begins this week and attracts over 2,000 festivalgoers from abroad each year.
The death toll from the storm has already reached 65, with tens of thousands of residents of the New York area and along the East coast of the U.S being ordered to evacuate.
No other Icelandair routes are expected to be disrupted. For updates on flight statuses check http://www.icelandair.us/information/travel-guide/flight-status/.
