United Cancels Flights For Fourth Straight Day

Posted: Updated:

United Airlines, still recovering from weekend storms in the Midwest, canceled dozens more flights Thursday as the second winter storm since Christmas threatened to pile 20 inches of new snow on Colorado.

Up to 8 inches of new snow was expected in Denver, which set a record for its snowiest Christmas with the nearly 8 inches that fell Tuesday.

United, the largest carrier at Denver International Airport, scrapped 66 flights -- about 16 percent of its daily schedule at its second-largest hub -- to help prevent planes passing through Denver from being stranded there, spokeswoman Robin Urbanski said.
