Over 200 flights canceled at LAX for 2nd day in a row – San Bernardino Sun

Another wave of flight cancellations hit Southern California airports on Sunday, with 207 flights canceled at LAX due to COVID-19 and weather issues.

The airport experienced 208 cancellations on New Year’s Day.

Orange County’s John Wayne Airport reported 10 canceled flights on Sunday, with nine at Long Beach Airport and seven at Hollywood/Burbank Airport. There are no flights listed for Ontario International Airport.

These problems continue since last week, when thousands of flights were canceled around the world daily. On Sunday, tracking website FlightAware.com listed 3,994 canceled flights around the world, 2,374 of which involved flights to or from the United States.

The canceled flights were largely attributed to airline staff shortages caused by the latest surge in COVID-19 cases powered by the Omicron variant. Weather problems also caused some flight cancellations.

“Happy New Year to our guests! Today will be a busy day for those returning from vacation. Check parking and traffic @FlyLAXstats before you head out and arrive early,” LAX tweeted at 8:03 a.m. Sunday.
