American Airlines has canceled about 160 flights due to a winter storm making its snowy way across the Midwest and other bad weather.

A few of those canceled flights originated at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and were bound for Kansas City and Chicago.

A spokeswoman for Fort Worth-based American said Thursday that the carrier is trying to delay and not cancel flights for customers trying to make their holiday travel plans. Andrea Huguely also says some flights were canceled following thunderstorms in the Dallas-Fort Worth area Wednesday night.

Some bus travel has also been disrupted by heavy snow and strong winds that combined for blizzard conditions from Kansas to Wisconsin.

Maureen Richmond with Dallas-based Greyhound Bus Lines says the carrier's main delays Thursday were in Minnesota and Wisconsin, on routes between Minneapolis and Milwaukee. She did not immediately have figures on cancellations.

NBC 5's Amanda Guerra contributed to this report.
