Honeymoon from hell: Rochester newlyweds stranded at airport

August 09, 2018 09:27 AM

A Rochester couple should be enjoying the start of their honeymoon but instead, their trip is turning into a nightmare. 

Nicole and Jake Zombotti got married just five days ago. They have been stuck at an airport for days just waiting to get to their final destination.

They have been bounced around to different airlines at the Newark Liberty International Airport trying to get to Croatia since their first flight was canceled.

This all started Tuesday night when they boarded a flight bound for Europe but storms forced delays and cancellations. What followed has been a mess.

Nicole says they have worked with different airlines to get booked, rebooked, and then booked again. The newlyweds also finally got ahold of their luggage, a room at a hotel, and they are now waiting for their next flight. 

The Zombottis are scheduled to take off Thursday night, but they still do not know if that is going to happen.

The irony in all of this is that their next scheduled flight is the same as their original one. It is the same airline, same time, and same route.

They are just hoping they do not get the same outcome.
