Airlines Cancel 12,000 Flights

Bad news for people who thought Sandy would blow over by Tuesday. Airline carriers have canceled more than 12,000 flights through Wednesday, losing millions of dollars and leaving thousands of travelers stranded. Airports from Washington, D.C., to Boston have canceled most flights on Monday and continue to ground more on Tuesday. A U.S. Airways spokesman said the goal is to have flights up and running by Wednesday, but they will first have to deal with a hefty backlog—and hurricane damage.
