Expect 'significant' traffic at Newark, JFK and LaGuardia airports, officials warn

Snowstorm turns LaGuardia Airport into ghost town, causes 99 percent of flights to be cancelled

The flights board at Boston Logan International Airport had similar listings, with nearly all flights in and out of the airport being canceled.

Delta said "flights should return to relative normalcy Wednesday, pending facility evaluations and resumption of mass transit services in NY".

The listing for March 14 shows that hundreds more flights down the East Coast have also been axed, most of which are coming from airports in New Jersey, New York City, Boston and the Baltimore-Washington D.C. area. Their meeting has been postponed until March 17.

At Tampa International Airport, as of 8 p.m. Monday around 26 flights were canceled due to the nor'easter.

In South Florida, airline and airport personnel remained cautious in giving the all-clear to flights, but expressed reason for optimism.

Scrapping flights hours ahead of a storm lets an airline re-allocate planes and crew earlier, meaning fewer flights and passengers canceled in total as a storm passes.

The storm, which followed a stretch of unusually mild weather, dumped 1 to 2 feet in many places, grounded more than 6,000 flights and knocked out power to almost a quarter-million customers from Virginia northward.

The flight tracking website FlightAware reports that more than 800 combined arrivals and departures at Logan have been scrapped.

Cleveland Hopkins International Airport officials said 100 flights were canceled on Tuesday. "Some customers opted to rebook their flights and go home, but for those that chose to stay, we brought customers doughnuts, sandwiches and salads and offered them the Care While Waiting snack carts".

Most of Wednesday's cancellations are morning flights.

Cancellations were spilling into Wednesday, too.

FliightAware.com says 26 flights that were to take off from Newark on Tuesday have been scrapped.

"They may get out of Key West OK", said Don DeGraw, Monroe County's director of airports.
