Harried East Coast record executives, publicists and artists scrambling to get out to the Grammy Awards found themselves in a pickle as many had their flights canceled due to Thursday's (Feb. 9) snowstorm, but airline JetBlue is coming to the rescue in the form of a “Grammy Rescue Flight.”

Due to the number of cancellations, the airline added a Friday flight (Feb. 10) departing from New York's JFK Airport at 1:20 a.m. that arrives at Los Angeles' LAX at 4:40 a.m.

“We’ve added a number of extra flights to help travelers caught in the snow get where they need to go, including this flight between New York and Los Angles,” a spokesperson for JetBlue tells Billboard. “Just in time for the big Grammy ceremony this weekend.”
