ST. LOUIS COUNTY - Airline passengers have been dealing with headaches at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

So far, at least 126 flights have been cancelled Monday, and that number is likely to grow as the night goes on. Most of the cancelled flights were heading north and east. This is a far cry from Sunday, when 300 flights were cancelled.

Right now, there are long lines at the ticket counters as people try to figure out when they'll be able to leave town. Outside crews are working hard to clean off the runways and make sure jets are free of snow and ice.

FLIGHTS: Check your flight status here

Most travelers say they can deal with delays it's cancellations that are really frustrating. Grant Bissell ran into one group that feels like they're being held hostage by Mother Nature.

"Originally we were supposed to be out of here yesterday. But that flight got cancelled. So we were rescheduled for today and then this flight is also cancelled. So we're kind of stuck. We don't know what's going to happen next," said Caitlin Barnett.

Bottom line, check with your airline so you don't get stranded at the airport.

The good news is there's still plenty of parking available. All the garages are open if you're lucky enough to be taking off.
