Massive flight delays and cancellations that have bedeviled travelers across the U.S. over the last two days because of the winter storm in the Northeast will ease by Saturday, January 4, 2014.
Heavy snow blanketed the Northeast from Maine to Washington DC and a cold arctic blast caused bone-chilling conditions outside.
Delays, CanceLLations Galore
Flight tracking service FlightAware reported a large number of cancellations and delays.
On Friday, 3,251 flights were cancelled in the U.S. throwing travel plans of thousands haywire.
Adding to travelers' woes, another 6,399 flights were delayed.
The three NYC airports (JFK, LaGuardia and Newark) were among the worst affected.
Nearly 600 flights originating from the NYC airports were canceled and another 446 flights delayed Friday.
But things will start to get better for travelers by Saturday.
As of 7:45PM ET, FlightAware was predicting a mere 260 cancelations for Saturday.
Air-Savings.com recommends you call your airline before heading to the airport to get the latest information on your flight.
Also leave an hour early to compensate for slippery road conditions and road closures.
