Thousands of flights canceled as storm descends on the East

Airline travelers are going nowhere fast because of the blizzard bearing down on the Northeast on Monday, and Tuesday doesn’t look much better.

At midday, more than 2,600 Monday flights within the U.S. had already been scrubbed, according to tracking service FlightAware.com. Most were to or from a band running from Washington through New York to Boston.

And more than 1,000 flights are delayed.

For Tuesday, 3,200 flights have already been canceled, FlightAware says.

United Airlines says it won’t fly Tuesday in New York, Boston or Philadelphia.
