Twice-diverted Delta flight set to leave Boston for New York

A Delta flight from the Dominican Republic that was intended to land at New York’s JFK Airport but was twice diverted has departed for its original destination.  

The flight was diverted to Manchester, New Hampshire on Monday night due to inclement weather. 

However, federal customs agents had to drive from Portland, Maine to Manchester to process the passengers since the Manchester airport does not typically accept international flight. 

The flight was intended to leave Manchester for JFK on Tuesday and fly to JFK Airport, but 40-knot wind gusts and low visibility caused the flight to be diverted to Boston Logan International Airport Tuesday afternoon instead.

Before the flight left for JFK, some passengers rebooked on other flights ore rented cars. 

On Tuesday night, the flight arrived safely in New York City.

Delta said the diversions were weather-related and did not make any official compensation offers.
