The second-highest airport for flight cancellations Monday is Philadelphia International Airport, which had 53 incoming and 53 outgoing flight stopped, according to the website.

The Monday flight changes were the latest in a series of weather-related cancellation sprees that observers have said have cost airlines millions of dollars this winter.
