Flight Cancellations Top 5,000 For 2nd Day

KHQ.COM - More than 5,500 flights have been canceled across the country for the second day in a row, as ice and snow continue to bring airport operations to a crawl.

There have been about 13,000 cancellations so far this week as airports shut down from Texas to New England, making it the most disruptive storm, as far as air travel is concerned, this winter. A post-Christmas blizzard led to about 10,000 cancellations.

Airlines are hoping it will be easier to rebook passengers caught in this week's storm, because there are fewer people flying than in the peak holiday period in December. Nearly 7,000 flights were canceled yesterday.
