Weather, precautions leave Logan, other airports clogged

A combination of snow, ice, fog, and new rules brought the national air transportation system to its knees Monday, leaving thousands of passengers stranded at Logan International and airports around the country — some for as long as a week.

First, a nor’easter blew into Boston last week, causing airlines to cancel hundreds of flights as holiday travelers tried to get home. Then snow hit the Midwest, further snarling air traffic, while icy conditions briefly closed John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York Sunday, diverting dozens of flights into Boston.
