Planes grounded, flights canceled at LAX
LOS ANGELES (AP) – More than 60 departing flights have been canceled at Los Angeles International Airport as a looming superstorm locks down flights to the East Coast.
LAX spokesman Marshall Lowe says 48 departing flights to New York and other areas in the storm’s front were canceled Sunday and another 62 were canceled Monday morning.
Lowe says 14 jetliners from various airlines are parked at LAX.
Lowe also says things are proceeding smoothly at the airport terminals because many passengers knew days ago that the storm was coming and were able to avoid last-second cancellations that would have stranded them.
