Midwest Storm Forces Flight Cancellations

DALLAS (December 20, 2012)—Texas-based American Airlines canceled about 120 flights Thursday because of a winter storm that’s making its snowy way across the Midwest and other bad weather.

A spokeswoman for Fort Worth-based American said Thursday that the carrier is trying to delay and not cancel flights for customers trying to make their holiday travel plans.

Andrea Huguely said some flights were canceled after thunderstorms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Wednesday night.

Some bus travel was also disrupted by heavy snow and strong winds that combined for blizzard conditions from Kansas to Wisconsin.

Maureen Richmond with Dallas-based Greyhound Bus Lines said the carrier's main delays Thursday were in Minnesota and Wisconsin, on routes between Minneapolis and Milwaukee.

She did not immediately have figures on cancellations.
