Deadly San Francisco plane crash causes more cancellations at DIA
DENVER — Saturday’s horrific plane crash at San Francisco International Airport temporarily suspended all flights going in and out of the area, which caused more than a dozen cancellations at DIA Saturday and at least five on Sunday.
A total of 13 direct flights on United, Southwest and Frontier airlines were affected Saturday by the ground stop in San Francisco, according to DIA spokesperson Laura Coale. DIA also received four diverted flights originally scheduled to arrive at SFO.
