    United Airlines Left passengers stranded in Newark

    Customer who were booked and checked in on United flight 4597, (scheduled to depart Newark for Halifax on Monday the 6th of January) were informed after waiting on the flight for many hours that flight 4597 was cancelled due to the freeze. My daughter was on that flight, she was travelling from The Bahamas.She was on
    her way back to school in Halifax. United told her that she would not be able to leave until the following Friday.
    She was also told that she would not be able to get her bags off of the plane, that her her bags would be at the airport in Halifax when she arrived. The did offer any assistance to the passengers, which was extremely distressing for me as my daughter was in a foreign country with no where to go and No Clothing!!! She was stranded!!!
    I have not been able to speak with anyone from United Airlines. The airline does not seem to care about there passsenger. They need to address this matter.
