WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) — The weather system stretching across the U.S. has caused tornadoes, flooding and snow. It’s also disrupted those who are traveling by air.
Over the last few days the airlines have had to cancel 2,800 flights and delay thousands of others. Many of the airports seeing those cancellations include: Chicago O’Hare, Chicago Midway and Dallas/Fort Worth. These airports are major hubs for American Airlines, United and Southwest. Issues at these airports often cause a ripple effect across the entire aviation system.
Cancellations/delays at @Bradley_Airport this morning. Check with your airline ahead of time if you’re flying today.
