Winter Weather Snarls Air Travel For 3rd Day

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

By The Associated Press

Airlines are canceling thousands of flights because of snow and freezing rain in the Northeast and Midwest.

FlightStats says almost 2,600 flights had been canceled as of 9:30 a.m. eastern time Wednesday. That follows almost 2,000 cancellations on Tuesday and another 2,500 on Monday.

Most of the canceled flights were from the New York-area airports, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington. Regional airline Cape Air alone canceled more than 200 flights, including nearly every flight planned from airports in Massachusetts.

United Airlines warned that the disruptions will affect flights in the Midwest, including Chicago and Cleveland, too. United and other airlines are allowing passengers to change their tickets without the usual change fees.
