A massive winter storm barreling across large parts of the U.S. canceled or delayed thousands of flights and inconvenienced tens of thousands of travelers.
While cancellations and delays were reported from dozens of airports across the U.S., Reagan National airport in Washington DC and BWI in neighboring Maryland took a particularly severe blow to their operations.
At Reagan National, 63% of outgoing and 54% of incoming flights were canceled, according to flight tracking service FlightAware.
Things were pretty bad at BWI too with 45% of outgoing and 29% of incoming flights canceled.
The cancellation picture was grim at Philadelphia International airport as well with 36% of departing and 32% of incoming flights canceled.
Weathermen predicted upto 10 inches of snow in Washington DC, Baltimore and Delaware.
New Jersey and parts of West Virginia were expected to get more than a foot of snow.
In all, by 10:45AM ET 2,324 flights within, into, or out of the U.S. were canceled and another 1,357 flights delayed.
Call your airline before heading out into the cold and check if your flight has been canceled.
Since roads are icy and covered with snow in most parts of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, allow more time to get to the airport.
