The travel nightmare is also having an impact at BWI Airport, where a 10th grade class returning to Denver from a trip to Israel has been stranded for hours. Those flights include more than two-thirds of flights in and out of New York City and Boston airports.

The flight was cancelled on Thursday as well.

Several flights heading to NY were diverted to Dulles International Airport after John F. Kennedy International Airport was shut down due to the weather.

As a powerful storm is hitting the East coast, thousands of flights around the country are being canceled today.

Fliers are urged to check with their carriers before heading to the PA's airports tomorrow.

Tracking service FlightAware.com said more than 4,000 flights were canceled within, into or out of the United States. It's much the same story at Newark's Liberty airport, where more than 70 per cent of flights were cancelled.

The National Weather Service said the coldest temperatures would settle over South Florida through Friday morning, with temperatures expected to gradually warm over the weekend. The Port Authority of NY and New Jersey said flights will resume at 7 a.m. on Friday at JFK.

Air Canada has said it will waive change fees for customers booked on affected flights, space permitting.

That's from Pittsburgh International Airport spokesperson Bob Kerlik. "Just gotta go with the flow and stay positive", she said.

A Singapore Airlines flight bound for JFK was diverted to Stewart Airport in Orange County instead, because of the weather.
