By Owen Weldon     Feb 5, 2011 in Sports
On Friday American and Southwest airlines canceled a more than several hundred flights to and from hubs in Dallas. A storm hit Texas just two days after a massive snowstorm grounded flights.
The flights were canceled because another winter storm hit Texas, and now Super Bowl fans may have to rush around looking for alternate flights.
On Sunday, Pittsburgh squares off against Green Bay, with kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET.
According American airlines, they canceled 630 flights from and to Dallas. Southwest airlines said that they had to cancel 130 flights in all of Texas. The snowstorm came just two days after a monster storm came to Texas, causing flights to be canceled and delayed throughout the nation.
Tim Smith is a spokesman for American Airlines, and he said that the main runways are open at the airport, but the ramps and taxiways are still messy and in bad shape.
Smith also said that the company is putting effort to keep their flights in from Chicago today, that way Super Bowl-oriented traffic will keep on moving.
Roger Goodell is the NFL commissioner, and he insisted that the big game will not be impacted because of the ice and snow.
Goodell said that all events are going to go on as planned.
