In a fitting end to a miserable week for travelers, U.S. airlines have canceled more than 1,200 flights and another 6,000 are running late. The airlines blamed storms along the East Coast and high winds in the country's interior on Friday. At New York's LaGuardia Airport and in Philadelphia, about one-fourth of flights were scrubbed and many more delayed. Total cancelations since Dec. 1 have passed 81,000, the most since the government started keeping track in 1987-1988.
