TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. This past Sunday, just 55 flights within, into or out of the U.S. were canceled, according to FlightAware, a tracking service.

VERBATIM: The Transportation Security Administration also says it screened just over 2.9 million passengers on Sunday. That surpassed the previous record of 2.88 million set on June 30. And it was 10% more than the Sunday after Thanksgiving last year. Travel was relatively smooth despite the crowds.
