Grayson cancelations

Delta, American and Virgin also canceled flights heading to major cities along the East Coast. The average flight is being delayed 16 minutes thanks to weather-related issues sich as de-icing planes and snowy runways.

Winter weather is wreaking havoc on airline schedules.

Caribbean Airlines Limited last night announced the cancellation of two flights between Kingston and NY today as a winter storm approaches NY and environs.

While the storm was drifting east towards Boston throughout the early morning hours of Thursday, it was close enough to Hartford's Bradley International Airport in CT to shut down 60 percent of the flights there, and 13 percent of the flights at Philadelphia International Airport, FlightAware reports indicated. More than 90 percent of LGA flights, more than 70 percent of Newark Liberty flights and 20 percent of JFK flights already are cancelled due to snow forecast.

The flight-tracking site FlightAware reported almost 5,000 canceled flights across the United States. The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey says the flights will resume at 7 a.m.

The airport suspended operations shortly before 11 a.m. local time.

"We are going to have to wait a whole day till we get back to NY now", she said.

Most airlines have been letting customers change reservations without incurring a fee, usually up to $200 on USA flights. Officials said the airport will reopen at 3 p.m. FAA officials told Reuters. Additional cancellations are possible as the storm moves north.
