LAX Flights Cancelled, Delayed Due To East Coast Snowstorm

However, airport officials said it is ultimately the pilot and the airline that get to decide to cancel the flight and allow the passengers to deplane.

At the Buffalo-Niagara International Airport, a number of flights leaving for Newark, Boston, New York City and Philadelphia have been cancelled. The average flight is being delayed 16 minutes thanks to weather-related issues sich as de-icing planes and snowy runways.

"My flight was moved to tomorrow at 8 a.m.in the morning because of the storm", she said.

Winter weather is wreaking havoc on airline schedules.

The powerful winter storm pummeling the East Coast resulted in thousands of canceled flights, leaving passengers stranded at airports across the USA - including in Los Angeles. "This is the first flight of the day and arrives Chandigarh at 7.30am", a spokesperson said.

The winter storm that has pounded the East Coast of the country has been a winter wonderland for some but a nightmare for others.

By 11 a.m., airlines had already canceled 233 flights Friday, according to FlightAware.

The Pittsburgh International airport is now at 34 delays and 55 cancelations. It's much the same story at Newark's Liberty airport, where more than 70 per cent of flights were cancelled. The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said flights will resume at 7 a.m. on Friday at JFK.

Many airlines are waiving cancellation fees so their customers aren't left stranded and surprised on the airport.

Nevertheless, airport authorities advised flight passengers to contact their respective airlines about the scheduled flights before heading to the airport. Additional cancellations are possible as the storm moves north.
