Texas Sees Minimal Sandy Flight Disruptions

DALLAS (AP) — Hurricane Sandy scrapped scheduled flights to and from the Northeast but caused minimal scheduled disruptions at the two major airline hubs in Texas.

The 95 scheduled Monday departures from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport that were canceled amounted to fewer than 20 percent of the day’s schedule. DFW spokeswoman Sarah McDaniel said 93 scheduled arrivals also were canceled.

About 70 scheduled Monday departures from George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston were canceled. Houston airports division spokeswoman Darian Ward says a roughly equivalent number of arrivals also were canceled.

The cancellations involved flights from and to Eastern Seaboard airports from Washington to Boston.
