Up to 15 flights canceled at Phoenix Sky Harbor

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- A Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport spokeswoman says as many as 15 flights were canceled to and from the Northeast to Phoenix.

Spokeswoman Deborah Ostreicher says the Philadelphia airport is open but still experiencing delays, and that the airport in Newark, N.J. is still closed.

Delays continue up and down the East coast.

Ostreicher says some people are delayed but that: "We do not have loads of people living in the airport."

She says many airlines have waived flight change fees and are asking passengers to change their plans if possible.

In other airports across the country, thousands of travelers were left stranded by a blizzard that slammed the Northeast with more than 2 feet of snow.

Some airline passengers could be stuck for days and many planes are booked solid because of the busy holiday season.
