- An ice storm sweeping over parts of the southern U.S. has prompted the cancellation of approximately 865 domestic flights over the past 24 hours, according to the flight-tracking group FlightAware.com — adding to the seemingly continuous toll of disruptions that has hit flyers over the past year.
- The storm was concentrated in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area, home to both American and Southwest airlines — though with 419 canceled departures, Southwest had the lion’s share of affected flights, according to FlightAware.
- An alternative measure of cancellation rates on flight-tracking site Anuvu.com showed 9% of Southwest’s flights had been canceled, compared with 6% of American’s flights.
