NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The mild weather was fine for the first Super Bowl in the Northeast, but a snowstorm is making it tough to fly out of town.
By midday, the flight-tracking website FlightAware reported nearly 2,000 delayed flights and 1,500 canceled flights nationwide, including in Newark, New York and Philadelphia.
The total delays nationwide as of Monday evening totaled 10,704.
And as CBS 2’s Emily Smith reported, more than a thousand flights had been canceled at airports across the Tri-State Area as of 5 p.m. Monday.
Inbound flights to Newark, LaGuardia and Kennedy airports were delayed two to three hours because of snow and ice.
