All three networks chose the disruption of air travel as their angle, even though the storm also snowed in roads and icestorms created power outages. CBS' Cynthia Bowers and NBC's Janet Shamlian both filed from Chicago's O'Hare Airport. NBC brought us an In Their Own Words feature (at the end of the Shamlian stream) from Frank Stanton of American Airlines, who had the job of juggling all those delayed flights.
The FAA's public relations apparatus scored again. On Thanksgiving Eve, CBS and NBC both showcased its air traffic control command center in Herndon Va. This time it was ABC's turn as Lisa Stark (subscription required) showed us the blinking lights of flight patterns across the national map.
