Southwest suspends Love Field flights

Southwest Airlines said it is suspending flights to and from Dallas Love Field for much of the day Saturday "due to the conditions surrounding Hurricane Ike."

The airline said it suspended all flights to and from Love between 10:30 a.m and 5 p.m.

Southwest said passengers holding reservations on Love Field flights through Monday can rebook at no charge. Passengers holding reservations for a cancelled flight can seek a refund.

Dallas/Fort Worth Airport had issued no new Ike-related weather alerts as of this morning, although bad weather moving through Chicago forced a ground stop on all flights to and from Chicago's O'Hare airport early Saturday.

Late Friday afternoon, D/FW said it "is preparing for potential disruptions in flight schedules Saturday" due to Ike.

"The airport will remain open, but flight delays and cancellations may occur as Ike's strong wind and rain head to North Texas," the airport said.

American Airlines said Friday it expected crosswinds at D/FW to cause headaches as early as Saturday afternoon.

South Texas Airports including Bush Intercontinental and Houston Hobby closed as Ike moved ashore.
