Airlines cancel hundreds of flights as snow falls

Heading east? Check with your airlines first before heading to the airport.

Airline officials say hundreds of flights have been canceled as a snowstorm bears down on the Northeast. A spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says there's no accumulation as of early Thursday at the New York City area's airports.

But Steve Coleman says "hundreds of flights" have been canceled in anticipation of bad weather later on. Some flights in and out of Philadelphia have already been grounded as the snow falls.

Southwest Airlines says it expects delays, diversions and cancellations in airports from Baltimore to Buffalo, N.Y., and has grounded most of its flights into and out of Philadelphia for Thursday.
