(WBAP 24/7 News) - As the weather improved in North Texas, American Airlines and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport continued to see cancelled flights due to winter storms in other parts of the country Wednesday.
D/FW Airport had about 100 flight departures cancelled as of 3:30 Wednesday afternoon, but delays improved, according to spokeswoman Cynthia Vega. All of the airport's runways were open and security checkpoint waits were less than 15 minutes, she said.
Matt Miller, spokesman for American Airlines, says the Fort Worth-based carrier cancelled about 500 flights nationwide as of 5 p.m. Wednesday. Those cancellations included 375 to and from D/FW Airport, with most of them being on American Eagle regional flights, he said.
American also cancelled flights at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport due to a snowstorm and at the New York's area's three imports as that storm moved toward the Northeast, Miller said.
