American & Southwest Airlines have both canceled flights for Thursday, Jan. 4 due to the winter storm hitting the Northeast.
American says they have canceled more than 300 flights on Thursday. Southwest says they have canceled nearly 300 flights on Thursday.
"I looked at my phone and was like, why does that say canceled," said Van Nguyen, who was trying to get home to Boston Wednesday night. "Can you please explain to me why this flight is canceled? Because there's no snow there."
Many flights were canceled ahead of the approaching storm.
"They use terms like 'bomb cyclone'. It sounds pretty missable," said Rebecca Bennett, whose flight to New York was canceled. "Someone wants us to continue our holiday in Dallas!"
"Sad. Very, very sad," said Susanna Ordonez, whose flight to Boston was canceled. "I'm missing the birth of my grandchild."
