Airlines Cancel Flights As Winter Storm Hits South

Friday, 12 Feb 2010 12:54 PM

 

Airlines canceled hundreds of flights Friday as snow pounded parts of the South and threatened to dump several inches of white on Atlanta, home to the world's busiest airport.

Delta Air Lines and its feeder partners canceled 1,100 flights in anticipation of 2 to 4 inches of snow in the metro Atlanta area.

American Airlines and its American Eagle affiliate canceled about 400 flights Friday, including 228 at its hub at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The snowfall there made this the snowiest winter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 32 seasons.

Back in Atlanta, AirTran Airways canceled 62 flights in anticipation of the impending snow.

Airline passengers were being encouraged to check the status of their flights before leaving for airports.
