FlightStats data showed 56% of flights scheduled at Newark, La Guardia, and Kennedy airports were flown during a three-day snowstorm (The Wall Street Journal,February 21, 2006). All airlines say they always operate within set safety parameters-if conditions are too poor, they don't fly. The following data show a sample of 400 scheduled flights during the snowstorm.
