    Flying in the wintertime is always a risky proposition. Winter storms can wreak havoc on the air transportation network. In the first week of 2014, JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU ) customers have found out just how bad things can get when the weather doesn't cooperate.

    Since Thursday, JetBlue has canceled more than 1,000 flights. This has left many JetBlue customers stranded at their vacation destinations for days (in some cases, up to a week!), while preventing others from getting to where they were going in the first place.

    While every airline has encountered weather-related trouble in the last week, none could top JetBlue's woes. This could have a significant near-term impact on JetBlue's earnings as the airline has had to refund thousands of customers' airfares. Longer term, it could make some travelers wary of flying on JetBlue again, even though many of the problems were out of the company's control.
