Better that than to have a major accident.

The trouble is in this sort of weather everything freezes up. The planes themselves can be de-iced but if they don't take off within a short period of time it needs to done again. And then there's the runways and taxiways. Brussels airport apparently has a heated runway, but from what I've heard it's no use because they can't keep the planes de-iced for long enough to take off!

Another problem is planes and crew being stuck in the wrong places.
It's the country mate, never prepared, other countries handle it fine in even worse conditions every year.
