Computer Glitch Leaves 150 People Stuck On AirTrain To JFK For Hours

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some travelers headed for JFK Saturday night had a headache before their flights even took off.

The AirTrain to the airport had to be shut down for several hours, with about 150 people stuck in the cars.

The riders were stranded between Jamaica Station and the airport just after 7:30 p.m.

A computer malfunction apparently caused the hold-up.

The 150 passengers were picked up by 19 shuttle buses and taken to the airport.
