    Flights Cancelled Following Storm

    United Airlines says limited service might begin Sunday afternoon at New York airports, but crippled D.C. area airports remain closed (Published Sunday, Jan. 24, 2016)

    If you take a look into baggage claim you'd think there were no flights coming into Boston's Logan Airport. This weekend's storm grounded hundreds of planes across the country.

    For Juan Paniagon, catching a flight to New York was impossible on Sunday. His trip to the Dominican Republic will have to be cut a day short. He joins thousands of others trying to make flights.

    Angela Varner is just grateful her trip to Orlando is being delayed. "I have to get to a business meeting and a lot of my colleagues flights are cancelled. So I desperately trying to get out of Boston to get to this meeting and hopefully everything will work out," she said.

    Massport officials have teams of plows clearing snow on the runways, but it's not just Boston's 6-8 inches of snow that is preventing planes from taking off.

    "If the plane that was supposed to be taking off from Logan was supposed to come in from DC and it's stuck in DC then it's going to affect, so we think we got 24 delayed flights and about 139 cancellations," said Massport CEO Thomas Glynn.

    It's recommended that you check on the status of your flight before making the trek to the airport.
