Airlines already canceling flights ahead of Tuesday's blizzard

All Tuesday flights have been canceled at LaGuardia and Kennedy airports.

Numerous cancellations were of flights from Chicago, a major hub where a storm has caused the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

Officials have canceled hundreds of flights ahead of a nor'easter expected to drop more than a foot of snow and create blizzard conditions in some parts of the Mid-Atlantic and New England.

More than 2,800 flights are either canceled or delayed at airports across the USA, but we've seen just two so far at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

American Airlines departs to and from Philadelphia and the cancellations will affect about 10 round trips.

Travellers check the departure board in the United Airlines terminal during the snowstorm.

American Airlines Flight 3509 from Chicago, scheduled to land at 8:58 p.m. Beginning at 5:45 p.m., one flight to NY, two to Baltimore-Washington International and two to Washington, D.C., had been scrubbed.

The major airlines are waiving ticket-change fees that range up to US$200 for customers who want to change their travel plans.

Before heading to airport, carriers are advising to check in with customer service to see if your scheduled flight is on time.

About 20 inches of snow is expected to fall in Newark on Tuesday. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines Co. grounded more than 1,300 flights through Wednesday. We're expecting to hear more from airlines on their decisions about what they're going to do on Tuesday, including more cancellations.
