Weather-related flight delays mostly over at New York airports

NEW YORK (AP) -- Federal flight trackers say most scheduled airline flights out of New York's three major airports are back on time this morning, although there are a few stranded passengers.

A spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration says service disruptions at LaGuardia, J-F-K and Newark International airports began at about 6 o'clock last night because of stormy weather in the Midwest. American Airlines says it canceled 19 flights because of the weather.

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports a record number of flight delays at New York City's three major airports for the first four months of this year. More than a-third of all flights at Newark, J-F-K and LaGuardia were either late or canceled. That in turn led to disruptions elsewhere.
