That's how many flights were canceled by U.S. airlines in February, according to Flightstats.com, the most reliable source for real-time flight operations.
That means that U.S. airlines canceled 5.2 percent of all flights scheduled for Febuary.
The reason was snowstorms that raked the Northeast and Southeast states. Hardest hit were airports in the New York and Washington D.C. areas and in Philadelphia.
The top five airlines in February flight cancellations, according to Flightstats.com:
--American Eagle (2,779)
Note: American Eagle is the regional-airline subsidiary of American's parent company AMR. So the real number of flights canceled by American in February was 5,288. Though keep in mind that the other major airlines (Southwest excepted) depend heavily on regional jet flights contracted through independent regional "airlines," so it actually makes sense to tote up the American-American Eagle flights separately.
