ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – More than two dozen arriving and departing flights at Lambert Airport have been cancelled, mainly due to a winter storm hitting the East Coast.

According to Lambert’s website, 18 arriving flights and 15 departures have been cancelled and others delayed.  Most of the cancellations are on United, some are on Delta and American.

According to CNN, 1,600 flights have been cancelled nationwide.

Washington, D.C., New York and Newark airports are all feeling the effects of the storm that is dumping several inches of snow.  That means passengers trying to get to the east coast are now spending more time in St. Louis.

Many folks FOX 2 talked with who are delayed getting home to the northeast, seemed to be making the best of it.  Sometimes cancellations and delays are just part of the fun of traveling.
