ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – With a winter storm pushing toward the East Coast Monday, travelers with flight plans might have a bit of a problem Monday.
More than 1,800 flights were cancelled across the country Sunday, according to flight-tracking service FlightAware. At home, Lambert-St. Louis International Airport had 52 arrival flights and 82 departures cancelled Sunday.
The storm is to blame for canceling up to 2,000 flights around the country Monday.
We spoke to a spokesman for Lambert, and 29 arrivals and 23 departures were canceled as of 11:30 a.m. A lacrosse team from New York, whose flight was canceled yesterday, was rescheduled to fly out today.
Meg Brown said, "Our flight was canceled. We were told early so we stayed at the hotel where we were at... We did hear about the storm in advance so we were prepared to pack some extra clothes… We're lucky to get out. We're happy to go home."
The flights canceled yesterday are trying to get off the ground today. That could result in some regularly scheduled flights being delayed.
Monday morning as of 4:45 a.m., 17 arriving flights and 11 departing flights had been cancelled.
With the storm still pushing through the east, there's a chance of cancellations rising throughout the day.
Before heading out the door, make sure to check your flights and airline about plans for the day.
