American citizens still face difficulties until noon on Saturday, about 600 flights were canceled and more than 2,100 were delayed, according to the website "Flightware", which specializes in tracking the movement of flights.

The situation was worse yesterday, Friday, as the site announced that it had monitored the cancellation of 3,060 flights and the delay of about eight thousand others.
