Saturday afternoon found several major airlines departing from LAX having to cancel flights to East Coast cities where a brutal winter storm forced many airports to shut their runways. By last night, however, "the flight schedule had returned to normal," reports the LA Times. Passengers with reservations for Sunday and today will face no more than the usual holiday travel headaches and hassles, however those whose flights were canceled Saturday may still find they are in a holding pattern as airlines work to accommodate them. Airport authorities say Saturday's storm, which affected travel in cities such as New York, Baltimore, and Washington D.C., "affected more than 6,000 passengers," some of whom were told they could not be re-booked to travel until Christmas Day.
