Winter storm warnings were issued for much of the Northeast starting at 6 a.m. on Friday, and running through early afternoon on Saturday.
As you can imagine, there are numerious flight delays and cancellations in some of the nation's busiest airports, including Boston and New York. These cancellations will provide plenty of headaches not just for domestic flyers, but for travellers all around the globe.
Two resources offer near real-time “scoreboards” with flight cancellation info and statistics to follow. Both come from two well-known flight tracking services.
FlightAware Live Airline Flight Cancellations Info & Statistics
Find data about cancelled flights organized by airline, departure airport, and arrival airport. Selecting any one of these access points will provide you with a list of all cancelled flights with flight numbers. You can view cancelled flights for the preceding two days, the current day, two days ahead, and also access a list of all cancelled flight for the past week.
FlightStats Global Cancellation and Delay Tracker
As the name of this resource suggests you’ll find both cancelled and delayed flight statistics back 30 days by airline, departure airport, and arrival airport. Plus, a graph to compare cancellations and delays back one month is provided.
The major difference between this resource and FlightAware is that FlightStats Tracker does not provide info about specific flight cancellations. Data about specific cancelled flights be found elsewhere on FlightStats.
