Hundreds of flights were cancelled in the midwestern and northeastern US yesterday as the area was hit by a winter storm.

According to FlightStats, more than 700 flights were cancelled due to Storm Luna and schedules are expected to be disrupted again today as a knock-on effect.

Many airlines are waiving change fees for those in affected areas, including American Airlines.
