Endeavor Air (formerly Pinnacle Airlines) (Minneapolis) Bombardier CRJ200 (CL-600-2B19) N8758D (msn 7758) operating Delta Connection flight 9E/DL 4100 from Toronto (Pearson) to New York (JFK) was involved in an incident. The aircraft landed at New York (JFK) and slid off an icy taxiway into a snowbank yesterday morning (January 5). As a result the airport was closed for about two hours due to icy conditions until the surfaces could be cleaned. This led to a series of diverted flights. There were no injuries.
