ATLANTA (AP) — Fewer than 40 Friday flights at Atlanta's airport had been canceled by early Friday morning, a dramatic decline after previous days when cancelations numbered in the hundreds.

The flight tracking service FlightAware reports that just 39 flights into and out of the world's busiest airport had been canceled before dawn Friday.

That's down from more than 800 cancellations the previous day.

At the height of this week's ice storm, more than two-thirds of all scheduled flights to and from Atlanta's airport on Wednesday were canceled.

Travel problems remained Friday at airports along the East Coast.

Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey -- one of metro New York's three major airports -- was leading the nation Friday in the total number of flight cancelations for Friday with more than 280 flights canceled.
