DENVER (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Flight cancelations due to snow are continuing to cause problems for some Frontier Airlines passengers.

The airline says about 70 percent of its flights were delayed over the weekend. Around 275 flights were canceled because crews were stranded or had reached the limit of hours they’re allowed to fly.

Denver International Airport, where the discount carrier is based, got more snow than expected from a storm that started on Friday night.

A few more flights were canceled on Monday. Television footage and photos shared on social media showed rows of bags waiting to be claimed by passengers and long lines at ticket counters.

In North Texas Frontier Airlines flies into Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. As of Monday morning flights to and from Denver, from DFW, were listed as “on time”.
