There were dozens of delays and cancellations on the boards at Will Rogers World Airport Sunday.

Airport officials said it'll likely be the same story because many of Monday's flights depend on certain arrivals Sunday night.

If passengers can reschedule, American, Southwest and United airlines are allowing customers to change flights scheduled for Sunday and Monday without a change fee.

In the meantime, airport maintenance crews will work to clear the runways and taxiways.

Some travelers had to fight the icy roads before even getting to the airport. It took one man two hours to get to Will Rogers World Airport from western Oklahoma, almost double the normal travel time. He arrived only for his flight to get delayed by several hours.

“It’s aggravating that it got pushed back like five times. But I actually kind of like this weather,” Destrey Apple said.

According to the flight tracker on Will Rogers World Airport’s website, there are major delays at Texas airports as well.

And the Southmoore High School band is set to fly out of Dallas Monday for their performance in the London New Year's Day Parade.
