Crews work to de-ice planes,background, and clear snow from the tarmac at Logan Airport in Boston, Monday, March 2, 2009, after a late winter storm closed runways, and forced the delay, redirection, or cancellation of flights across the eastern United States.

Winter snowstorms in the northeastern U.S. are causing some flight delays out of LAX, airport officials said today.

Flights bound for New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, where a ground delay program is in effect, were averaging delays of more than four hours this afternoon. The delays are expected to grow worse. Passengers headed for Newark, New Jersey and San Francisco should also be prepared for delays of between 45 minutes to an hour.
