CHICAGO -- Chicago's airports are also trying to recover from the blizzard.

Some travelers haven't been able to get out all weekend.

FlightAware.com shows O’Hare Airport has already canceled 70 flights for today and has just a few delays.

Midway Airport doesn't have any delays, but nine flights there have been canceled for today.

Over the weekend, more than 11,000 flights were cancelled as busy airports in the mid-Atlantic and East Coast regions were buried under a blanket of snow.

Felipe Salcedo was originally supposed to fly from Cancun, Mexico to Washington, D.C. on Friday.

"That got cancelled. And Saturday, got cancelled again.  Sunday got cancelled again, so finally I made it to Chicago right now, and I had a connecting flight to Chicago yesterday night that was cancelled as well, so right now what I’m doing is going to Akron, Ohio, then I’m driving.  I have a two hour flight then six hours of driving," Salcedo said.

The major airlines say some of these cancelled flights won't be rebooked until Tuesday at the earliest.  But, by midweek, air travel should be back to normal.
