ATLANTA (AP) - As a winter storm with potential to coat the South with ice and snow moves in, nearly 900 flights have been canceled at three of the region's major airports.

Tracking service FlightAware shows that before dawn Tuesday, 894 flights for the day had been canceled into and out of the main airports in Atlanta, Dallas and Charlotte, N.C.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the main hub for Delta Air, led the nation in Tuesday flight cancellations with 368.

Delta is allowing customers expecting to travel through several Southeastern cities from Tuesday to Thursday to make free one-time changes to their itineraries. The waiver applies to travelers passing through Atlanta; the Carolinas; Huntsville, Ala.; and Norfolk, Va.

They say that it's so annoying when people take an airplane to get to like Dallas to Houston.

I woke up this morning to a notice that my flight on Wednesday had been cancelled. Couldn't get on the website, I guess because of volume, so I waited on the phone for about an hour and got new reservations. Only hope I can get out on my next flight on Thursday. Eh! Whatcha gonna do?

Nothing new here, the south is not equipped to handle the occasional large storm and has no controll over flights being canceled from other places because of their conditions.
