DALLAS (AP) -

Travel is slowly getting better after a Texas ice storm canceled hundreds of flights and left thousands of people without electricity.
    
The Texas Department of Transportation late Sunday opened all major highways in areas hardest hit by last week's wintry weather.
    
Fort Worth-based American Airlines and American Eagle on Monday canceled 700 flights systemwide, mainly in North Texas.
    
About 650 people were stranded Sunday night at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport as flight schedules begin returning to normal. Spokesman David Magana said  that's an improvement from Saturday night when about 2,000 travelers were stranded.
    
Dallas-based Oncor on Monday reported nearly 22,000 homes and businesses still without power.
    
Dallas Area Rapid Transit on Monday offered a combination of rail and bus service. Trains were halted since Friday amid icy tracks.
