LAX flights to and from East Coast resume post-Sandy
Flights to and from Los Angeles International Airport and East Coast airports hobbled by super storm Sandy were reported to be back to normal Thursday by LAX officials.
They had been forced to cancel more than 200 arrivals and departures earlier this week.
On Wednesday, airlines canceled 27 flights between the eastern airports and Los Angeles. There were 182 canceled flights on Tuesday, according to LAX spokesman Marshall Lowe.
But Lowe cautioned that travelers should check with their air carriers to verify flight schedules to and from New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and even Midwest cities such as Cleveland and Chicago, because of “fluid” conditions on the East Coast.
The storm,which was blamed for dozens of deaths and left millions without electricity, was expected to peter out later this week. But several more inches of snow are possible in the Appalachian mountains, according to the National Weather Service.
