DENVER — Airline passengers have been stranded up to three days at Denver International Airport because of freezing temperatures gripping much of the East.

Some people have been there since Saturday, when cancellations that began on Friday escalated.

Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale says 41 flights have already been canceled for Tuesday, most of them commuter flights headed East. Coale says it could take days to clear the backlog in Denver once the weather clears. The airport handles more than 1,600 flights a day.

JetBlue Airways stopped all scheduled flights to and from New York and Boston on Monday. The airline planned to resume some flights Tuesday morning, and some Southwest Airlines operations in Chicago resumed Monday night.
