Winter weather causing delays, cancellations at Charlotte Douglas



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The winter storm that is wreaking havoc across the northeast is causing flight delays all over the U.S., and it's impacting dozens of flights at Charlotte Douglas International.

Eyewitness News has been monitoring the arrivals and departures board, and at noon, more than three dozen flights were either cancelled or delayed.

Most of the cancellations were arrivals from places like New York, Philadelphia and Boston -- but this winter storm is causing flight problems in many other places, too.

One passenger said his connecting flight to Chicago was cancelled Thursday, so he had to spend the night back home in High Point and come back Friday morning. He was finally able to catch another connecting flight in Washington before his final flight to Tokyo. He wasn't complaining though -- he said the new plan saved him four hours.

"It's actually more convenient this way than it was yesterday, really. That's strange, but yeah," said Keith Clark.

Of course, a lot of people are in similar situations, waiting for flights to depart. The key is to make sure that you check your flight before leaving home to make sure it's on time.
