    The storm in the Northeast has forced airlines to cancel more than a thousand flights this week.

    American Airlines is one airline keeping an eye on the storm, after grounding hundreds of flights on Wednesday.

    Flights out of many airports on the East Coast destined for North Texas have been canceled. Flights from Dallas-Fort Worth traveling to the East Coast all appear to be on time.

    As many as 1,700 flights were canceled Wednesday, according to FlightAware.com, an airline tracking website, including more than 40 flights in and out of DFW International Airport.

    Other estimates of cancellations were less at about 880 flights. The difference depends on the flight’s departing airport and destination.
     
    For travelers heading to the airport, check your flight status before leaving your home.
