Blizzard: Cancellations soar past 5700, stretch into Wednesday

Bradley International Airport in Hartford, Conn., canceled all departures on Tuesday and warned passengers that further delays will most assuredly carry into Wednesday. Flight 1120 from San Francisco touched down at 4:38 p.m. ET with Flight 499 departing two minutes later - the first arrival and departure after the reopening of the major aviation hub.

Delta said "flights should return to relative normalcy Wednesday, pending facility evaluations and resumption of mass transit services in NY".

Delta Air Lines has canceled more than 900 flights in advance of a major winter storm approaching the northeast.

According to FlightAware's cancellation listing for March 13, hundreds of flights leaving Chicago - where the same storm system already touched down Monday - have been cancelled. "They stand in those longlines and by the time you get up to the counter, the flights are gone", Dwyer said. About 50 flights at Hancock Airport in Syracuse have been cancelled on Tuesday.

American Airlines: Depending on the airport, passengers traveling to or from affected cities can change their flights to March 15 or March 17 without a fee.

SFO has experienced a total of 39 inbound delays, although many of those may be unrelated to the storm.
