The Wall Street Journal: Snowstorm causes massive airline disruptions, especially around Chicago

Airlines were struggling Monday to dig out from a powerful snowstorm that pummeled the Midwest at the height of Thanksgiving travel.

The storm, which dropped more than a foot of snow on some places, largely subsided Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service. But its effects continued to snarl air traffic throughout the day after grounding hundreds of flights Sunday as travelers tried to make the trip home.

The biggest impact was at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport: Some 8.4 inches of snow accumulated there, one of the biggest November snowfalls on record, according to the weather service. The Federal Aviation Administration slowed traffic at the airport, with some arriving flights delayed by more than four hours.
