Major airline are canceling flights in and out of the New York area ahead of a major winter storm bearing down on the region. Over a thousand flights scheduled for today and tomorrow have already been cancelled. The bigger issue: On the heels of Hurricane Sandy, a second storm will further disrupt the Q4 profitability of major carriers - although some industry loss estimates came in too high. Wolfe Trahan pegs the number at $190M with some sales made back up on rescheduled trips - instead of the +$500M loss projection getting bandied around last week.

    FoxBusiness carried this story. I went to flightstats. It looks like only a few flights cancelled, mostly by AA and UA, and no JetBlue.. This week flights to NYC are generally 1/3 full, flights get cancelled a lot in those kinds of situations!
