"We have paused our service for the remainder of the day for the safety of our customers and crews", Southwest said in a statement.

Southwest said it "proactively canceled" about 220 flights and was offering refunds or flight vouchers, WBBM-TV reported.

"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.

The Southwest Airlines flight 2123 from Los Angeles to San Jose was forced to make an emergency landing at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California due to fire on board.


"The glycol has been replenished and the airport deicing equipment is fully functional", a spokesperson for the airline told T+L on Monday morning. The airline blamed freezing conditions at Midway Airport for slowing down deice crews around the holidays.

This is not the first time that Southwest has suspended flights because of de-icing problems.

An icy winter storm moving across the Great Lakes forced Southwest Airlines to cancel all of its flights in and out of Chicago on Sunday. More than 250 flights were canceled, according to the Chicago Department of Aviation.

Midway recorded four inches of snowfall on Sunday, according to Chicago's CBS affiliate, two days after 9 inches of snow fell on the airport.
