American Airlines and American Eagle canceled more than 400 flights, including several in Oklahoma City, after storms damaged aircraft Tuesday at the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Two arriving flights and four departing flights scheduled for Wednesday were canceled at Will Rogers World Airport, adding to the seven flights that were affected Tuesday, said Karen Carney, an airport spokeswoman.

The airline also canceled five Tulsa round trips.

American Airlines has 94 aircraft out of service because of hail damage, 66 at American Airlines and 28 at American Eagle, spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said.

The aircraft were damaged when a severe hailstorm rolled through DFW Airport around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

DFW Airport reported that 1,400 passengers who were stranded from Tuesday's cancellations opted to stay in the terminals overnight. Airport spokesman David Magana said the airport distributed cots, blankets, pillows and toiletry kits to passengers who requested them and the American Red Cross assisted with additional blankets.
