Air travellers faced major headaches Monday as a hard-hitting late-season winter storm began to snarl flights from the Midwest into the Northeast.

Other airports with big cancellation figures include Newark Liberty International in New Jersey, with more than 1,000; LaGuardia and John F. Kennedy airports in NY, with more than 800 apiece; and Baltimore-Washington International, with about 500, according to FlightAware. Flights to and from New York, Boston and Chicago were the hardest hit with severe delays or outright cancellations. Here's what your airline may be doing to make up for the travel hassle.

Southwest Airlines, which carries more domestic passengers than any other airline, doesn't expect to operate any flights Tuesday at 14 airports stretching from Washington to Portland, Maine.

American Airlines, along with its regional partners, canceled more than 450 flights Monday and 1,450 flights Tuesday, the airline said.

British Airways said flights are "significantly affected", cancelling flights to New York JFK, Newark and Philadelphia.

Orlando Sanford International Airport's website was showing about nine flights canceled Tuesday morning.

Total of about 95 flights cancelled in Denver today due to blizzard in the northeast.

In addition to snarling air travel across the region, Stella could make driving extremely unsafe, with some roads likely to become impassable as blizzard conditions develop.

"I'm waiting to get into Philadelphia and they're waiting to get into New York City, and we can't get anywhere because they've shut down the east coast", she said.

The airline says it's making every effort to contact and re-accommodate customers on all cancelled flights. They can also change their flight without fee if they were scheduled to travel through an affected airport through March 15.
