Travel troubles are still lingering at airports throughout the Northeast, but at Reagan National and Dulles International Wednesday morning, things were fairly calm and quiet. 

However, the remaining backlog of passengers across the country is still causing a dusting of local delays.
 
About a dozen passengers whose flights were cancelled or delayed Tuesday were asleep at Reagan National Wednesday morning. One man we spoke with called his airline ahead of time, and checked his flight status online multiple times - just to avoid any delays once he arrived at the airport.

Some airport officials still say it could take until the new year to re-book all affected passengers and and straighten out the transportation mess created by the weekend's blizzard.

The scene at the U.S. capital's two airports was much calmer than in Moscow, where stranded airline passengers started riots on Monday.  The Financial Times reports that after snow storms kept hundreds of travelers grounded at Domodedovo airport for three days, angry passengers stormed the ticketing desks of Aeroflot, Russia's largest airline carrier.  Special police units were dispatched.
