American Airlines said it will have late starts at seven airports affected by Hurricane Sandy while operations at eight airports on the East Coast will stay closed until at least Wednesday.
The carrier, which has canceled 1,687 flights due to the storm between Sunday and Wednesday, said it is also having operational delays at its Chicago O'Hare airport hub.
"Our operations in [Chicago O'Hare] are significantly impacted," American spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said. "Wind is the issue."
The seven airports that will reopen later today include: Bradley International in Connecticut, Boston, Cleveland, Columbus, Ohio, Dayton, Ohio, Pittsburgh and Richmond, Va.
The eight airports that remain closed include: Norfolk, Va., Baltimore, Washington D.C.'s Reagan National, Dulles Airport in Washington D.C., Newark, Philadelphia and New York's JFK and LaGuardia airports, Huguely said.
"We're hopeful that operations will resume in most cities on Wednesday, but it's possible that the aftermath of the storm may force some additional delays and cancellations," Huguely said.
