Flights between Israel and the United States continue to be delayed as superstorm Sandy continues to batter America's northeast coast.
Thousands of Israeli airline passengers had their flights to the United States canceled on Monday and Tuesday.
Israelis trying to get home remained stranded in New York, New Jersey and the D.C. area as well.
In all more than 14,000 flights reportedly have been canceled due to Sandy.
