JetBlue saw its services disrupted by severe storms
US airline JetBlue has seen losses for the first three months of 2007 hit $22m (11m), following storm disruption to services in recent months.

JetBlue's chief executive David Neelman said two ice storms in February had "significantly impacted" its results.

While the budget carrier said it was disappointed by the results it was less that the $32m loss seen a year earlier.

However, JetBlue warned of weaker bookings in May and June, and it has also lowered its profit forecast.

The carrier saw its services virtually cease on 14 February following a storm at JFK airport in New York, leaving many customers stranded.

JetBlue said it lost $41m following the weather-related problems that caused delays in February and March.
