Storms result in record flight cancellations

NEW YORK (AP) - The relentless snow and ice storms this winter have led to the highest number of flight cancellations in more than 25 years.

An analysis by The Associated Press finds that U.S. airlines have canceled more than 75,000 domestic flights since Dec. 1, including roughly 14,000 this week.

Based on information provided by flight tracking site FlightAware, that's 5.5 percent of the 1.35 million flights scheduled during that period.
