IAH passengers struggle to reach destinations

The wintry blast which hit most of the country continues to cause some very serious problems for air travelers. Airlines cancelled 1,000 flights Monday, and an electrical problem at Bush Intercontinental Airport on Sunday evening only added to the misery for some folks.

Thousands of flights have been cancelled for those people trying to get to the areas of the country slammed with a powerful snow and ice storm. In the northeast, a snow and icy mix brought misery to the roads and caused cancelations in the air. But the hardest hit area was the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area where freezing rain lead to icy roads, deadly crashes and stranded passengers and grounded planes at DFW airport.

We found some frustrated passengers at Bush airport. One Dallas man says he was able to drive on the ice to make his flight in Dallas, only to land in Houston and experience delays in Terminal B because of a blown transformer.

According to airport officials, that transformer has been repaired and Terminal B is open. However, the baggage claim and a number of gates remain closed at the terminal as crews work to correct all lingering issues.
