NEW YORK (November 8, 2012)—After the second major storm in the northeast in a little more than a week, major airlines scratched about 600 flights around the U.S. Thursday, according to flight tracking service FlightAware.
The majority of those were in the New York area, although airports in Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and elsewhere were affected, as well.
More than 1,600 were cancelled Wednesday when a Nor'easter hit the area with a mix of rain and snow.
United and American suspended operations in the region by afternoon, as whiteout conditions developed.
Other airlines cancelled a handful of flights and encouraged passengers to reschedule.
Superstorm Sandy caused more than 20,000 flight cancellations when it hit last Monday, making it the second-most disruptive storm in the last seven years.
