NEW YORK (Reuters) – Winter has not been kind to airline travelers. Since December 21, more than 74,825 U.S. flights have been canceled and another 285,889 delayed in the United States, according to FlightAware.com, which tracks flights.
I was one of those unlucky travelers.
During the Presidents Day weekend, I was set to go to Los Angeles from New York with my 9-year-old son. The day before our flight, New York City encountered a large snowstorm, but when we woke up to start our trip, the sun was shining and the roads and runways were clear.
