Wanna get away? Well, you could be in trouble if you’re flying JetBlue these days.

The airline carrier with a Boston hub keeps on canceling dozens of flights a day, as the JetBlue passenger nightmare continues into a second week.

JetBlue had canceled 49 flights at Boston Logan International Airport as of 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. The 49 nixed flights represented 79% of Boston Logan’s 62 overall canceled flights.

Last week, the airline had cited weather elsewhere in the country as the reason for cancellations.

“After a number of tough operating days this week that began with severe weather challenges and air traffic control delays up and down the east coast, we are continuing to work to minimize impacts to our customers,” a JetBlue spokesman said in a statement on Sunday. “Despite hiring more than 3,000 new crewmembers already this year, like many businesses, we remain staffing constrained and these disruptions exacerbate an already challenging staffing situation.

“In order to get our operation back on track this week and provide additional recovery options for the potential of additional April weather events, we are cancelling some flights this weekend and will be making a small schedule adjustment through the rest of the month,” he added.
