Airlines Cancelled More Than 33,000 Flights in the USA During the First Three Weeks of January

A series of winter storms have led airlines to cancel more than 33,000 flights during the first three weeks of this year, reports AP. That’s more cancellations than in January 2013 and January 2012 combined, according to masFlight, a data and software company specializing in airline operations.

“It’s been miserable,” said John DiScala, who runs the travel advice site JohnnyJet.com and flies around 150,000 miles each year. “There’s so few vacant seats, so when they cancel one flight, trying to get onto another flight is next to impossible.”
