CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Winter weather caused major delays at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, even though there wasn’t a snowflake in sight around Charlotte.
Major storms in the Midwest, New England and Northeast prompted airlines to cancel or delay thousands of flights nationwide.
U.S. airlines canceled more than 2,300 flights Thursday because of the snowfall and low visibility.
By Friday morning, about 1,600 flights were canceled nationwide, according to the aviation tracking website FlightAware.com.
Some airlines, like US Airways, are waiving change fees for certain dates and destinations. Contact your airline to see if you qualify.
