Video surfaced online of JetBlue passengers begging crew members to let them off a plane after it attempted to land at a New York City airport multiple times, according to multiple reports.
Flight 1852 traveling from Cancun, Mexico, was scheduled to land at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport on Thursday. The pilot tried multiple times to land at JFK before having to divert to New Jersey's Newark Airport due to inclement weather.

JetBlue spokesman Derek Dombrowski told FOX Business that the plane had to wait on the tarmac at Newark for an hour while the pilot waited for the bad weather to pass. Winds at JFK around the time the aircraft attempted to land were gusting near 35 mph with visibility of about a half-mile and light rain.
"Once it was safe to do so, [the flight] departed again for JFK where it landed and customers on this international flight could properly clear U.S. Customs and Immigration," Dombrowski said.
However, while waiting on the tarmac, the shaken-up passengers implored crew members to let them get off at Newark, saying they were scared to get back in the air.
