San Jose-bound airplane evacuated at SoCal airport with smoke showing

Southwest has'multiple glycol deliveries scheduled for Monday and expects to resume'close to normal operations at Midway

Hundreds of passengers were stranded at Midway Sunday, with deliveries of more de-icer not expected until Monday, according to the airline.

"We will continue to work with our customers on their travel plans and apologize for any inconvenience the disruption in service has caused", a Southwest spokeswoman said Monday.

Flights departing and arriving from Chicago's O'Hare Airport didn't fare much better.

The Chicago Department of Aviation's website Sunday showed cancellations of all Southwest flights leaving Midway. The airline said flight 2123 was pushing back from the gate when the ground crew observed a possible fire near the rear exterior of the aircraft.

The incident forced authorities at the airport to partially closed the taxiway occupied by the aircraft, although operations resumed as normal shortly afterward.

This marks the second time this winter that Southwest has cancelled flights over de-icing fluid issues at Midway.

Southwest confirmed that canceled about 220 flights and has offered refunds or flight vouchers to passengers of the canceled flights.

When smoke appeared in the cabin, the crew made a decision to evacuate the plane.

Several waves of snow fell on Chicago, including a storm on Friday that dumped as much as a foot of snow in western areas.
