Airport travelers deal with delays during winter weather

Posted: Updated:

Airport travelers were frustrated as winter weather caused delays and cancellations at LaGuardia airport Sunday.

Departure boards at the airport showed delays of up to 30 minutes, but arrivals were coming in at over an hour behind schedule as of 10 p.m. Sunday.

Weather around Long Island turned to rain by Sunday night so people traveling after the Thanksgiving holiday felt only small effects of the freezing rain.

"We were concerned but we only ended up getting a 20 minute delay," said Aria Grossman of Hawaii. "So it ended up not being a big deal."

JFK also experience problems. Arrive flights were delayed for about an hour and 15 minutes, according to Flight Aware.

So far, flights look to be on schedule for both airports on Monday.
