Winter Storm Stella: Bradley International Airport cancels all departures

Flight-status tracking service FlightAware.com reports that 1,769 flights within, into or out of the U.S. Tuesday have been canceled as of 11 a.m. Monday. American Airlines canceled flights in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Boston. That flight, along with more than a thousand other arrivals and departures at Philadelphia International Airport, has been cancelled. The details varied by carrier, though they generally allowed customers to make one change to their tickets without paying change fees that typically cost $200 or more.

How many flights have been canceled Tuesday?

The airline said it had scrapped its services to the John F. Kennedy International Airport on Tuesday, affecting three non-stop flights and another daily flight from Vancouver.

Even before a massive storm began pounding the East Coast, almost 5,400 US flights scheduled for Tuesday were cancelled - including almost all of the planes at Newark Liberty International Airport.

A late-season winter storm has forced the cancellation of almost 8,000 flights since Sunday, with Tuesday promising to be the worst travel day yet. JetBlue Airways, with major operations in Boston and NY, had already canceled more than 600 flights scheduled for Tuesday, FlightAware said. We also talked with a man who was trying to get to Houston, Texas but his flight was canceled because of the domino effect. Changes must be made by Hawaiian Airlines personnel through the Reservations department or at the airport. Passengers can expect delays and/or cancellations.

Atlanta-based Delta said snow and high winds are expected to disrupt operations. For Tuesday, almost 120 flights had already been scrapped by Sunday afternoon with hundreds more likely to come.

Forecasters expect the blizzard conditions to last through tonight and say some areas of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and NY could see up to 2 feet of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
