Over 1,500 Flights Preemptively Cancelled for Tomorrow’s Winter Storm

1,500 flights have already been cancelled given the storms hitting the East Coast and Midwest tomorrow.

From USA Today:

Airlines had already preemptively canceled more than 1,500 of Monday’s flights as of 4:40 p.m. ET on Sunday, according to FlightAware.

The bulk of Monday’s cancellations – so far – came in the greater Washington, D.C. area, though problems were popping up at airports throughout the populous Northeast.

The storm was forecast to dump up to a foot of snow around the nation’s capital by late Monday afternoon. Nearly 440 flights – or more than 50% of Monday’s schedule – had already been canceled at Washington’s Reagan National Airport. The Monday percentages were lower but still significant at the region’s other two big airports, Washington Dulles (more than 20% canceled) and Baltimore/Washington (more than 10%).

I keep finding myself traveling during these winter storms.   I just want to thank readers/twitter followers Graham and Matt for giving me the extra push I needed to decide to move my flight into DCA tomorrow to Tuesday.

I have a feeling I was going to spend a lot of time sitting in the airport.  Well, not sitting.  Running from gate to gate.

Thanks, guys!

  1. I’ve been on 20 flights so far this year, and all domestic flights (18/20) have been delayed due to weather. This is simply a very weird year.

      I have yet to not have a weather delay or cancellation (mostly cancellations) since my slate of work travel started in November!
