SXSW: Winter storm affecting some flights out of Austin

American Airlines canceled flights in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Boston.

Airlines have cancelled thousands of flights as a winter storm bore down on the northeast of the United States, with over a foot (30 cm) of snow forecast.

"I just really hope our flight is on time and doesn't end up getting canceled like a lot of the other ones", she said. More than 8,000 flights across the US have been canceled since Sunday, USA Today reported Tuesday.

A look at FlightAware's cancellation listings shows that today, March 13, is already sporting almost 2,400 delays and more than 1,280 cancellations - and it's not even 10 a.m. yet on the East Coast.

ESPN's Field Yates reports ex-Cowboys and Broncos OLB DeMarcus Ware met with the Rams over the weekend before deciding to retire. The 34-year-old pass rusher took to Twitter Monday to announce his decision, saying he has "decided to accept the unknown".

With 1,029 cancelled flights, both ingoing and outgoing, Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey took the largest hit. Passengers can change their plans and rebook their flights for March 16 or 17.

American canceled more than 450 flights Monday and 1,450 flights Tuesday due to the storm.

The Greater Aviation Authority encouraged passengers to contact their airline providers for specific flight status before heading to the airport. For example, an Orlando-to-Houston flight could be delayed or canceled if the aircraft or crew scheduled to fly it get knocked off schedule because of the problems in the Northeast.

Airlines issued a number of change waivers ahead of the storm - here are the latest updates. Many flights out of St. Louis Airport pass through O'Hare or Chicago Midway airports.

New York City might be spared but the worst is still yet to come for the rest of the northeast, as the brunt of the snowstorm was expected Tuesday afternoon.

On Monday, Massport warned that it expected almost every Tuesday flight to be dropped and encouraged travelers to contact their airlines to check on the status of their flights.

Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines were among carriers offering to waive change fees and fare differences for travelers affected by the winter storm cancellations.
