It was the second time in a week passengers had been hit by mass outages due to winter weather.
More than 3.000 flights from Texas to New Jersey were cancelled by Thursday.
Dallas and Fort Worth airports, which have been the two busiest, have been affected.
For the second time in one week, airlines canceled hundreds of flights before a powerful winter storm is set to hit areas from Texas to New England.
More than 1.400 U.S. flights were canceled on Wednesday, and nearly 1.800 were scheduled for Thursday, FlightAware said.
Airline carriers, such as Southwest, American, Delta and United, vowed to eliminate price differences for travelers seeking to rebook flights during the storm.
Over the past week, airlines have canceled more than 4.000 flights because of another storm in the Northeast.
Although we do not expect widespread power outages as the temperature will not be nearly as cold as it was a year ago,we do expect ice to accumulate on roadways. Love Field is closed for flights on Thursday,and this is indicative on the sort of hazardous weather we expect to see.

Here is the latest thinking as far as snow and ice accumulations across Arkansas through Thursday. The most significant snow will be in the north/west, with significant ice likely in northeast, central, and southern sections of the state.#arwx pic.twitter.com/4k8ar9HQS5
