Flights to or from Chicago, Washington, D.C., Boston, New York City, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Newark, Toronto and Philadelphia were among those canceled. The airline is making every effort to contact and reaccommodate customers on all cancelled flights.

Although there were only two cancellations this morning, many more are expected as snow continues its path across the northeast.

A major winter storm is bearing down on the Northeast and promises to shut down transportation throughout the region on Tuesday. "Each airline has an app and they'll usually send you text alerts whenever there's a change in your flight".

Fortunately, airlines have already waived change fees for customers traveling in the storm's path.
