“Delta’s meteorology team at the airline’s operations and customer center will continue to monitor winter weather and make tactical adjustments as necessary,” the airline said.

An American Airlines spokesman said the storm is expected to have a significant impact on our operation in the Northeast, especially at Boston Logan International Airport.

More than 1,400 cancellations were registered Friday, most in Chicago O’Hare.

This weekend’s Nor’easter’s path becomes clearer as 75 million people from the Southeast to New England may experience dangerously heavy snowfall and winds approaching hurricane intensity with the potential to cut power, flood coastal areas and seriously hinder travel, predictions show.

The storm is expected to cause a double whammy of heavy snowfall and high winds in parts of the northeast, but the exact impact in the region remains questionable.

“This storm is likely to strengthen at a speed and intensity consistent with only the most powerful hurricanes, so the high-end potential of this storm cannot be overstated,” said CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller. “But with nor’easters, as with real estate, it all comes down to location, location, location.”

It’s been a miserable few weeks being an airline traveler. Winter weather and peaks in Omicron have forced 20,000 U.S. flights canceled during the busy holiday season. As travel increased, the cutbacks also meant that airlines had fewer employees than before the pandemic.
