Some travelers delayed following Midwest blizzard

DALLAS (AP) - Travelers heading out this weekend to start the holidays face some cancellations and flight delays as conditions improve following a Midwest blizzard.

Airports in the Philadelphia and New York areas reported weather-related flight delays Friday morning. The Federal Aviation Administration says flights at Newark Liberty International Airport were delayed an average three hours.

American Airlines on Friday reported 21 flight cancelations due to weather. Spokeswoman Dori Alvarez says American Airlines had a dozen flight canceled and its American Eagle unit had nine cancellations.

Alvarez says the Fort Worth-based carrier on Thursday canceled 99 American Airlines flights and 214 American Eagle flights.

Dallas-based Southwest Airlines canceled nearly 260 flights since Thursday but said the carrier was running its full schedule Friday.
