On Tuesday, more than 80 flights were canceled.  Most were Alaska Airlines flights.

The spokeswoman for Alaska also said “several” deicing trucks broke down, and deicing at the gate-- a newer procedure at SeaTac-- did not go smoothly. 

The Seattle-based carrier says its adding more staff to de-ice planes, and would have more trucks on hand to do the job Thursday.
