The harsh winter weather has set a new record for flight cancellations.

A study by the Associated Press found this winter's snow and ice storms have led to the
highest number of cancelled flights in the U.S. in 25 years.

The AP says U.S. airlines have canceled more than 75,000 domestic flights since December 1, including roughly 14,000 this week.

That's the most since at least the winter of 1987-1988, when the Department of Transportation first started collecting data.

The AP says cost-cutting measures and new government regulations are also to blame for the cancellations. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
