Bad Weather Leads To More Than 100 Delayed Flights At LAX

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Stormy weather in Southern California, Northern California and on the East Coast led to more than 100 delayed flights before noon at Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday.

As of noon, 105 arriving flights were late and 94 departing flights were delayed, according to the airport’s Katherine Alvarado.

Five arriving flights were canceled, as were five departing flights, she said.

Travelers should check with their airlines before coming to the airport.

The storm now moving over Southern California hit San Francisco Sunday – typically the busiest travel day of the year – delaying some flights for two or three hours, and that backup spilled over to Los Angeles and other Southern California airports.

Delays in originating East Coast cities, such as Boston, New York and Philadelphia, also triggered delays that spilled over to LAX.
