Question: My mother, 84, wound up stuck on a plane because of bad weather while trying to get from Long Beach to Rochester, N.Y. After nearly five hours on the tarmac at JFK, her connecting JetBlue flight was canceled, the plane returned to the gate and she said passengers were told no flights were available. She was tired and confused. A seatmate helped her get a bus to Syracuse, where my husband picked her up. Who's to blame? NANCY ESTABROOKS Wyoming, N.Y.
