Source: Business Insider / Bloomberg

Nov. 7 (Bloomberg) -- United Continental Holdings Inc. and AMR Corp.ís American Airlines suspended most flights to and from the New York area starting later today because of a winter storm forecast to hit the northeast U.S.

American and its American Eagle regional partner also will suspend services in Philadelphia at noon local time, about three hours before grounding New York flights. Delta Air Lines Inc. also projected halting some flights. Southwest Airlines Co. and US Airways Group Inc. were tracking the storm.

The weather system is threatening the U.S. northeast after Hurricane Sandy forced about 20,000 cancellations last week. While airlines often move planes from the path of large storms to keep them from being stranded, United began reacting hours after forecasters started warning of the stormís intensity.
