NEW YORK (AP) - Airports in New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore were resuming some service Sunday, a day after a punishing blizzard dumped two feet or more of snow and brought transportation to a standstill along the East Coast.

The major airlines intended to resume service throughout the region by Monday, though hundreds of flights then have been canceled.

Nearly than 12,000 flights were canceled from Friday through Monday as states from New England to North Carolina wrestled with a massive snow dump.

All told, 3,458 flights scheduled for Sunday and 699 flights for Monday had been canceled, according to flight tracking service FlightAware. With 3,100 flights failing to take off Friday and 4,511 being grounded on Saturday, the total of flights grounded was 11,768 for the four-day period.
