Any LH USA-East Coast Cancellations Due To Hurricane Sandy?

Just wondering if either the MUC-EWR or the FRA-EWR would make it in time on Monday into EWR?

NY/NJ Port Authority site only saying to check with airlines, United canceling everything, but LH appears to be flying - would anyone risk flying via DE (either MUC/FRA/DUS) into EWR on Monday?

This is a little bit like lottery, but the latest forecasts predict Sandy to reach the coastline by late p.m. on Monday, so most transatlantic flights should be already on its way back to Europe.

The main problem for me seems to be to potentially cancelled connecting flights out of JFK/EWR.

This is already happening - almost all UA flights ex-EWR are cancelled already: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/unite...el-waiver.html

Why would the YYZ-FRA flights be cancelled unless something totally unexpected other than high gusts happens?

Because Sandy is expected to clash with a stalled cold front around Toronto that may turn the lashing rain into a sudden snowstorm!

Nothing to worry about here in Toronto. The weather is calmer now than it's been for about 5 days.
