Another 400 departures canceled at DFW Airport on Sunday

Another 400 departures have been canceled at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Sunday as conditions remain icy.

Three runways are fully operational on Sunday even though a light freezing drizzle was falling early in the morning. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing this afternoon which should help operations at the airport.

"DFW crews look to take advantage of five hours of above freezing temperatures that will help with efforts to remove ice," the airport said in a statement on Sunday morning.

The airport said about 2,000 passengers stayed in the terminals overnight, down from about 3,000 on Friday evening. The airport continues to provide cots, toiletry items and free entertainment for stranded passengers.

According to Flightstats.com, American Airlines has canceled 588 flights systemwide while American Eagle has canceled 380.
