DENVER >> Dozens more flights have been canceled at Denver International Airport because of planes knocked out of service by hail.

Frontier Airlines is the hardest hit and canceled more than 60 flights through Saturday because of damage from Wednesday night's storm. Nearly a third of its 59 large planes need to be repaired.

Denver's largest carrier, United Airlines, canceled 39 flights Friday. It has 12 planes out of service for hail damage inspections but spokesman Mike Trevino didn't know the extent of the damage.

Southwest Airlines says three of its planes were damaged. But with 550 planes in its fleet, it didn't have to delay or cancel flights.

Frontier says it's working to switch passengers to other airlines and paying hotel bills for those who've been stranded. Five planes could return to service this weekend.
