Monday's winter storm forced the cancellation of more than 900 flights at local airports, while mass transit suffered minor delays from the snow.
According to the Port Authority, 453 flights were cancelled at LaGuardia, 119 flights at John F. Kennedy International Airport, and 335 flights at Newark Liberty International Airport.
Those flying are still being encouraged to call their airline carrier ahead of the flight.
"Now I'm going to travel to Kennedy to see if I can get a flight from Kennedy to Montreal," said one airline passenger at LaGuardia this morning.
"My flight was originally 7 o'clock. They called me that the flight was delayed, cancelled actually for 9 o'clock," said another. "Then, it was delayed t0 9:50 a.m., and now it's 10:50 a.m."
"We are on time," said a third. "I feel great."
