6:03 am
just insane. >> this is not texas weather. this is alaska or idaho. >> not texas weather that's for sure. nick valencia joining us live from dallas-ft. worth airport. not a great way to start off the week, nick. >> reporter: no, not at all. what's happening here in dallas, kyra saks mic -- is a microcosm what's happening across the nation. 30% of the flights that come out of this airport are cancelled. it's more of the same this morning. another 86 flights cancelled this morning. american airlines is the big airline that operates out of dallas-ft. worth airport and they are just preparing for the worst right now. there's some passengers that we spoke, to some of them are a little bit more angry than others about the delays. take a listen. >> i don't know why american cancelled all those flights yesterday. they cancelled them at 9:00 in the morning and there wasn't a flake of snow or sleet anywhere to be seen.
6:04 am
we're pretty upset with american. >> we're delayed again and we have work to be at and we're out $400 that we didn't expect and american is not helping. it's very disappointing. >> my flight is a little delayed but not too bad. >> reporter: back here live pictures at the dallas-ft. worth airport. we want to mention, those this travel here, yes it's bad in dallas but places like central pennsylvania are being impacted. upstate new york. i don't have to tell the people watching us in oklahoma or arkansas just how bad it is there. that low pressure system moving through creating temperatures that are about 10 or 20 degrees below average. usually we see this kind of weather around january not around november and that's causing a lot of mess for this week because that's you know, kyra, this is a busy holiday week, travel week. 40 million americans expected to travel 50 miles or more. so if you are traveling or getting on the road, stay safe and be sure to check those travel advisories. kyra? >> we'll be checking with you. nick valencia for us in dallas
6:05 am
this morning. just how long is this storm going stick around and where it is headed next? >> unfortunately things are going going to get worse. take a look at this video. this is an example of what we're expecting. this is oklahoma city where they saw icy roads. they are not standalone incidents. heavy snow from new mexico in through oklahoma. pay attention in through texas where we tons of reports of freezing rain. yes travel woes but also half an inch of freezing rain that makes a power line weigh 500 pounds. we're talking about power outages as well and that freezing rain right now moving in through arkansas. so let's talk about this set up. today we have these icing concerns. arkansas back through texas. here's the set up moving forward. this low is picking up moisture out of the gulf and combine with a second system make being its way across atlantic. a lot of moisture anticipate cold air mixing in with it.
6:06 am
this is the concern through the holidays especially tuesday and wednesday. for today heavy rain pushing farther to the east, two to four inches along the gulf. tomorrow it will push up to the carolinas as the first low makes its way up the eastern seaboard. snow behind that. tuesday, light rain starting to fill in the northeast but for now no snow. mid-atlantic we'll start to see wintry mix behind at any time snow. tuesday night through wednesday, this is the trickiest, start seeing heavier on interstate heavy rain, strong winds which will bring travel delays and continue to see that wintry mix. this is the toughest time period if you're traveling tuesday night into wednesday morning. wednesday we're talking about rain along the eastern seaboard closer to the coast more rain farther inland snow. by thanksgiving conditions start to improve hopefully everyone wants to get there prior to thanksgiving. that's what we're hoping for to get there safely. >> on this program every 15 minutes we'll have your forecast
6:07 am
for you throughout the morning. also this morning a new cnn poll shows a majority of americans, are losing confidence in our president. 60% says president obama cannot manage the u.s. government effectively. this comes after the disastrous launch of the website. can this administration oversee major policy roll outs as faith in obama's ability has been declining since the spring. we're talk being 52% in may falling to 47% in june. cnn foreign affairs correspondent at the white house. good morning, jill. >> reporter: you look at this poll and it's not only the ability to manage that's one of the things that americans are having problems with president obama b-it's also personal qualiti
6:08 am
qualities. is president obama honest and trustworthy. 53% answer says no. then you look at another kind of odd thing, i would point out is ironically people still think that want he's likeable. although there's been some slippage in that. look at this. likeable back in may, 79%. now it's 71%. which is really quite high. when you get into the honesty, again slipping from may 58% back down to 46% now. and a strong leader back in may, americans were saying 58% in this poll that he was and now they are saying 46% believe that he's a strong leader. as you look at this, when you get into those numbers even more directly, is he a strong and decisive leader you have 46% saying yes but 53% saying no. finally inspiring confidence. much the same reaction. so these are significant
6:09 am
problems for the president. they go beyond immediate issues but into what is he and who is he as a leader. >> thanks so much. we're talk about the issues and policies. foreign policy, u.s. allies and members of congress slamming a historic deal on iran's nuclear program but they are not alone. isrealis prime minister benjamin netanyahu said it's a historic mistake. >> we cannot and will not allow a regime that calls for the destruction of israel to obtain the means to achieve this goal. we will not allow iran to have a nuclear weapons capability. >> israel is refusing to recognize the deal reached over the weekend, even though the six month agreement slows iran's nuclear program in exchange for lifting some of the sanctions. returning negotiators received a hero's welcome in tehran in the midst of all this. jim sciutto has been covering the negotiations. historic agreement or a blow to
6:10 am
our allies? >> reporter: well, that's a question, if you listen to israel and saudi arabia it's a blow to the allies. if you listen to secretary of state john kerry it makes them and us safer. before the ink was even dry on this agreement you heard that opposition and not just from office, on capitol hill as well. and from republican and democratic lawmakers who say they will pursue new sanctions even as this deal gets under way. being there in that room as they were making this agreement in the early hours of sunday morning you really had a chance, an idea this was a history making moment. a historic agreement sealed with a hug. >> this agreement could not have been reached without the decision of the iran jan government to come to the table and negotiate. >> reporter: it puts limits on iran's nuclear program. it limits enrichment of uranium
6:11 am
well below the level to make a nuclear obama. it allows intrusive daily monitoring of its nuclear sites. in exchange the west economic sanctions on iran is eased, in all about $7 billion in relief. but in a case of diplomatic ambiguity allows for different interpretation of iran's rights. >> there is no right to enrich. >> reporter: the answer to a question from cnn, iron said it gave iran what it long sought, recognition to develop a peaceful nuclear program including enriching uranium. >> the white house says there's no formal recognition right to enrich. how did you square that circle. >> we believe the current agreement, the current plan of action as we call it, in two distinct phases, has a very
6:12 am
clear rerns to the fact that iranian enrichment program will continue and will be a part of any agreement. now and in the future. >> reporter: the deal will only last for six months. it pushes the pause button but not delete. >> israel is in fact safer than it was yesterday. >> what was concluded in geneva last night is not historic agreement. it's a historic mistake. it's not made the world a safer place. like the agreement with north korea in 2005, this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place. >> administration officials tell cnn that the white house will begin consultations with israel right away on a longer term agreement with iran.
6:13 am
we just learned israel's national security adviser will be traveling to washington this week to discuss it. in light of how stiff their opposition is to this agreement it's hard to see how the white house can convince them to come on board going forward. >> we'll talk a lot about it next hour. jim sciutto, thanks so much. still to come soaring fares and slicing service. who is the winner in the merge center you. >> i'll take a look at what these big mega mergers in airlines means four and the price of your ticket when you travel right after this break.

cnn chief business correspondent christine romans here to explain it all. this is why you and i stay home with all the kids because that racks up. >> reporter: it does. sometimes the pain of traveling has nothing to do with the ticket price in our case. >> that's true. >> reporter: the traveling companion. this is a fascinating analysis by "usa today" on front page. it looked at 100 of the big markets over the past eight years in this big period of consolidation in the airline industry. they took a real close look what happened with fares. they found wide variations, quite frankly and in some of these places that used to be big hubs for these airlines, after a merger maybe they are not a hub any more and there's less available seats and higher ticket price. when you look at the numbers crunched here, for example some big, big ticket increases, you mentioned cincinnati, there's some others they pointled out in washington, d.c., savannah,
6:19 am
dallas, et cetera, some big fare hikes over the past few years. what's interesting here is you've had -- remember delta and northwest went together. united and continental merged together. smaller carriers that disappeared off the face of the earth. american and usa merger. consumer advocates are taking a close look whether this will mean higher fares four. the government was in on this. so both the government and american now say no, don't worry we'll still have good service. they made some concessions. over the past ten years in some of these places you've seen fares increased. the good us? when you go back to the 1990s fares today are lower than they were in the 1990s. >> okay. there's one little piece of good news there. we still should have the families come to our house. it makes it a lot easier. still to come the one hit

6:24 am
pam brown is following that story for us out of new york. pam, it's hard to understand why people would want to do this? >> reporter: it's truly just mind-boggling. it doesn't make sense. a 12-year-old boy, a 78-year-old grandmother, a 24-year-old jewish man. just a couple, few of the victims recent live punched in the face for no apparent reason. are these violent stunts just isolated or part of a larger phenomenon known as the so-called knock out game? new york city police arrested this 28-year-old man and charged him with assault after he randomly punch ad 24-year-old jewish maniac cording to authorities. nypd spokesperson said a task force is investigating that case and looking into recent similar attacks against jews in brooklyn new york. new york city police commissioner ray kelly stopped short of saying they are part of the knock out game. >> when you highlight an incident or a type of criminal activity some people will simply

[ bleep ] >> that was like real people that wasn't like -- >> no. >> reporter: the people we showed video to could hardly believe this is happening. these videos captured by surveillance cameras could just be random attacks or what is considered the knock out game or the one hitter quitter where youths randomly punch strangers with the goal of knocking them unconscious with a single blow. >> it's not a game because the person was probably injured. >> the idea to attack someone for no reason on the streets of new york city is outrageous. >> reporter: a 78-year-old grandmother. she was walking home when a young man ran up and punched her. >> she's terrified. she will not leave the front of her building. >> reporter: the violent stunts have been reported in six states and washington, d.c.

at least four victims have died including this vietnamese man in st. louis and a homeless man in hoboken, new jersey. >> they are doing this to get a thrill to prove their manhood or womanhood and peer pressure. certainly they are followers and not leaders. >> reporter: and it's difficult for police to know exactly how widespread these cases are. until now they all fall under assault. some police department its spoke with are reluctant to tie any of the recent random assault cases to the knock out games because random attacks on strangers is nothing new. one thing is for sure here the suspects of these crimes can face very serious consequences and in fact the case for the st. louis man was killed the suspect was sentenced to life in prison. it's anything but a game. there has been this debate in the wake of this, you know, how this should be labelled. it is part of the knock out game

6:35 am
in dallas, where ice coated airplanes, airlines were forced to pre-cancel hundreds of flights to avoid the inevitable. airlines and airports are experienced with wild weather and they are ready for this. >> you can call this the nerve center of the airline. >> reporter: united watches the weather and directs every flight around the world from their headquarters in chicago. the decision to cancel flights happens here. >> these individuals are actually measuring the impact of weather, of the air traffic control system, in coordinating not only internally with united airlines but with faa. >> reporter: they are talking to this faa command center near washington. conference calls keep airlines and faa controllers up to date with changing conditions. and a warning for travellers. think before you book. >> probably the worst mistake is
6:36 am
take a connecting flight or connect through a known bad weather airport like chicago or minneapolis or detroit. airports that are prone to snowstorms. >> reporter: a storm as big as this one will be hard to avoid. all right. so, again, to recap right now what we're seeing, problems at airports places like dallas, places like oklahoma and arkansas where they are already getting hit by that weather. of course as the system don't move even more airports will be added to the list of having delays or cancelations. but just to give some perspective right now we're talk about hundreds of cancelations as a result of this storm but when we're talk about a really major storm, we're talking about cancelations in the thousands. no comfort for the people, though, who are trying to get somewhere and they cannot. but just giving a little perspective there. back to you. >> all right.

6:38 am
it signals on paper that political tensions are easing up. so you are seeing oil prices a little lower today at $93 a barrel. oil prices have come down since the beginning of the year. we saw oil prices as high as $110 a barrel. now at $93. you're seeing it reflected in gas prices which are relatively lower than usual. >> we're monitoring that nasdaq record. iran, oil and i'm sure you have tuned into miley cyrus and a cat. >> and the cat. >> allison, this, my friend is no joke, i'm afraid. ♪ >> all of us this morning saying oh, my gosh did this really happen? american music award highlights or maybe low lights for you. a quick wrecking ball break.

6:52 am
of course, for the past 34 years, iranians haven't had much good news, especially on the world stage. they've been often portrayed in a negative i light in the media and in hollywood. they believe that this deal takes the first step in opening up relations with the west and lifting some of the sanctions that still is a ways off. they understand that this is an interim deal that doesn't address some of the toughest sanctions, some of the sanctions on the banking restrictions and on the oil experts. but they believe this is a positive first step. and here is what else they're happy about. they're happy that their leadership instituted firm and demanded a right to a peaceful newark leer program. they believe just like anyone else, they have a right to enrich uranium and they're happy that they're able to do that at 5%. and for all of those people in the u.s. congress and israel who are concerned, they make this
6:53 am
point. that they're only able to produce uranium at 5%, not 20%. and that would seemingly make it impossible for them to produce the fuel necessary for a bomb. so they say all the alarm is baseless. and again, most iranians very happy with this agreement. >> still to come, bleacher report. right up after the break, tom brady and peyton manning may get all the headlines. but the key play came when neither was on the field.

6:57 am
i don't know, i think green bay, wisconsin, is still the coldest place on earth for football. >> but it was pretty cold last night. it was supposed to be an epic battle. last night, it looked like it was going to be one-sided. the broncos were up 24-0 at halftime. but you can't count out tom braedy. brady with a bullet and that was a part of a 31-0 run by the patriots. the broncos they wouldn't go away. he hits for the touchdown there. and that tied the game. and this is the play that would decide it. the broncos were punching. but the bash bash the patriots were punting and they recover the fumble and kick an easy field goal to win a game about 4- 434-31. >> i was pretty pumped up. i'm pretty pumped up after he

score like that. it's nice to celebrate. usually i'm pretty grumpy to be around. >> we had another thrilling finish between the chiefs and chargers. san diego was down by four with under a minute to go. that's when they found tutu for this touchdown. and it was only his third catch of the year. what a great name. chargers stunned the chiefs, 41-38. kansas city has now lost two in a row. and the best moment from the weekend came from the lions game. they thought they were watching a video of him from afghanistan, as they watched, josh snuck up from behind and surprised them. cue the tears. it was definitely an awesome moment. he lost a spleen and kidney while serving and he wasn't supposed to return until february but now will spend thanksgiving at home. and there's further proof

carol costello is off today. 43 million americans are getting ready to travel for thanksgiving. but a deadly storm system that's marching east and bringing ice, sleet and know could disrupt your plans. in oklahoma, this suv spins out, flips over, tumbles off the road. treacherous conditions blamed for ten traffic related deaths so far. in dallas, planes are being de-iced and hundreds of flights canceled. but many travelers didn't even expect to see conditions like this in texas. >> it's kind of a bummer. of all states texas, the weather is insane. >> this is not texas weather, this is alaska or idaho. >> and we're live at dallas-ft. worth international airport. >> it could have been a lot
7:02 am
worse. the bad news, in anticipation for that severe weather, lots of flights were canceled. about 300 flights canceled yet here at dallas-ft. worth international airport. and that impacts places like center pennsylvania. upstates new york. you saw the mess it created. all throughout texas and oklahoma. and today, another 180 flights departing this airport can semied again. largely having to do with those planes being canceled yesterday not being in place today. earlier i spoke with passengers who were affected by the delays and they told me how they were impacted. did you guys prepare differently because of the weather out here? is it making you take different precautions? >> well, our original flight as canceled so we're up here a little earlier. traveling light. >> reporter: about 300 flights canceled yesterday and another 86 canceled today. >> we were. we were affected. our first flight as canceled.
7:03 am
and we had to call and get back on. >> reporter: are you happy between the communication between the airlines? >> yeah. we had at least 24 hours. it was good. plenty of time to reschedule. >> reporter: some passengers are a little bit more upset about their delays than others. we are spoke to a couple earlier that said they didn't get enough head's up from the airlines and they were out $400. and if you look behind my, the lines pretty empty here. a lot of that has to do with the precancellations. they wachkted to limit the amount of passengers stranded in the airport on monday. but this is a very, very busy travel week with about 40 million americans expected to travel 50 miles or more. it's a busy holiday week. so it's the last thing that people need to be dealing with is more severe weather. >> and thanks so much. cnn will keep you updated on this massive storm every 15
7:04 am
minutes. indra petersen is joining me now from new york with more on where it's headed next. >> this thing is heading to the east. take a look at arkansas and you can see all of the freezing rain. look at all of the reports of heavy snow in through new mexico and oklahoma. look at all the freezing rain they saw back in texas. and now here comes that system pushi pushing farther to the east but clearing out to the west. today if you're from arkansas in through texas, there's are the winter advisories out there. and then a big rain maker. all of the moisture is going to be pulled out of the gulf. and then it's going to intersect with all the cold air moving over the lake. these two systems will combine and that's the reason we're so concerned about the travel especially tuesday in through wednesday. heavy rain in through the gulf by tomorrow spreading into the carolinas. and then that same system makes its way up the eastern seaboard. and if you are traveling
7:05 am
tomorrow, look in the mid atlantic. we're talking about sleet and ice and even know snow behind that. and closer to the east coast, talking about mostly rain. but even heavy winds can cause the delays. tuesday night in through wednesday, heaviest rain bands will be falling closer to the coastline. behind it heavy snow, maybe 4 to 8 inches. and of course the wintry mix. how much we see in each of these areas, that will depend on how these systems all come together. as you move through again, wednesday things will look better later in the day. still a lot of heavy rain and snow behind it in the morning, but it looks like the big hubs in the east coast will be talking about rain and wind. then you make your way to thanksgiving, things start to look better. by thursday we're left with most likely with light snow and backing up all the way in through maine. and the big thing to take away
7:06 am
from this, these models are continually changing. all of these things factor into how much snow, sleet, rain, ice all of these things that can be affecting us can change. >> and cnn is all over this story. your next detailed forecast just 15 minutes away. but on the bottom of the screen, we'll have temperatures across the country. also flight delays right there on that bottom part of the screen. president obama is praising a deal between six world power leaders and iran to slow that nation's nuclear program in exchange for lifting some sanctions. but a key u.s. ally is slamming the agreement. benjamin netanyahu says it's a his coric mistake. >> we cannot and will not allow a regime that calls for the destruction of israel to obtain
7:07 am
this goal. >> cnn's jim shoe stow tow has the story now from geneva. >> no time to celebrate. the ink was barely dry on the agreement before we started hearing stiff opposition to it. they're going to pursue new sanctions against iran even as this deal gets underway. being the deal was signed in the early hours sunday morning, you had a sense that history was being made. a historic agreement in geneva early sunday sealed with a hug. >> this agreement could have been reached without the decision of the iranian government to come to the table and negotiate. >> reporter: but by later sunday morning back home in the u.s., some politicians on both sides of the aisle sharply criticized the deal. >> we have just rewarded very bad and dangerous behavior. think about what this agreement does.
7:08 am
it says that you can continue to enrich. and they have made no changes, no changes in the development of their nuclear weapon program. >> it's disappointing to me that iran is still going to be allowed to enrich while they're talking. i would have thought that that should be a prerequisite to any kind of talks. >> reporter: after three weeks of talks, the deal puts unprecedented limits on iran's nuclear program. iran dilutes its existing stockpile of highly enriched uranium. and it allowed intrusive daily monitoring of all of its nuclear sites. in exchange, the sanctions will be eased, in all about $7 billion in relief. but in a case of diplomat ambiguity, it allows for very different interpretations of iran's rights. >> it is not in this document. there is no right to enrich. >> reporter: iran's foreign
7:09 am
minister said the deal gave iran what it has long sought, formal recognition of its freedom to develop a peaceful unique clur program. the deal will only last for six months. it presses the pause button, but doesn't press delete. and it all happens in the faces of bitter differences. >> what was concluded in geneva last night is not a historic agreement, it's a historic mistake. it's not made the world a safer place. like the agreement with north korea in 2005, this agreement has made the world a much more dangerous place. >> reporter: during the six months of this interim agreement, iran and the west will begin to negotiate a longer term agreement. and the white house tells cnn that has that's happening and starting, it's going to be consulting with israel very closely on the outlines on the

so we got a pretty disturbing warning from boeing this morning. the aircraft maker saying that some of its plain plaens could have engine icing problems. now boeing is recommending that those planes stay away from certain storms. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. >> this isn't good news for boeing. as you said, they're warning several carriers that fly these dreamliner planes. here is what the issue is. ice crystals can build up in the plane's mechanisms if they fly near thunderstorms. and what happens is that impacts the engine's performance. what boeing is doing is telling these air lines not to apply the 747 or 787 within 50 nautical
7:14 am
miles of a thunderstorm. boeing also stressing that there's only been a handful of insurance departments with this and that those planes lapded safely. but these airlines aren't taking any chances. japan air is telling us it's pulling them from some of its routes. tokyo to new deli and singapore is one of them. and that at this point is a short-term plan. delta is telling us it got a warning from boeing. we're waiting to hear back from other airlines. but there are reports that united add others have been warned about this problem from boeing as well. >> and it's just the 747 and 787. what about a fix? >> that's the question. what's happening is general electric which makes the engines of these planes, they're working to address this problem. but here's the thing. there are reports that a fix may not happen until march. now the dreamliner hasn't been
7:15 am
shy about these problems. lots of problems in the past. the entire fleet was temporarily grounded earlier this year because of battery problems. this problem isn't as large scale as that. but you've got to understand that confidence is key. you can't feel real confident get on one of these planes. and you can see that playing out with its stock. boeing shares are down almost 3% today so investors are reacting. >> i think storm or not people would be freaked out to fly these. alison kosik from the new york stock exchange. thanks so much. just three days ago until thanksgiving and a blast of snow, ice, sleet moving toward the east coast and threatening to discorrupt travel plans for millions. freezing rain hitting parts of texas and arkansas. and tomorrow, snow will begin to fall in kentucky, pennsylvania,

7:32 am
day. in the past that's what they've demonstrated. they've admitted that been they're negotiating strategy. maybe secretary kerry was actually telling the truth there when he said, look, it is now incumbent upon iran to proof it's not proceeding with the development of nuclear weapons. that's a tough call. because i can prove to you that i'm not robbing banks. how do i do that? there's a bank i haven't robbed and there's one. but i don't show you the ones i have. well, iran for the past 15 years has always had something in secret that we have later found out about. those things right now, we just have to assume they're still proceeding with them. that's the scary part about this alleged deal. >> so donna, wouldn't it have been truly historic to just have written in that deal, dismantle the centrifuges?
7:33 am
>> there's no question after 34 years we haven't had much of a relationship with iran. the approach is a cautious approach. six months to come up with a final agreement that will, i'm sure, have some strong language in there for iran to halt it's entire program. but for now, this is an opportunity for iran to show and demonstrate to the world that they will not, you know, put together the -- all what i call the necessary material to build a nuclear bomb. they will be daily, not weekly, but daily inspections to make sure that this doesn't happen. this has to be verified. if it doesn't work, you know what? the united states still has all of its options on the table. and the most -- >> what would those options be? military option or hand ringing at the u.n. >> we have tough sanctions because this president is
7:34 am
committed to that. and we've been able to get china and russia on board. we've got to keep the coalition together. and if iran goes back to the same old strategy, then those options are still on the table. the president has not ruled out any option. but what he's doing, i think, is give diplomacy a chance. but guess what? we have eyes that will be there every day in iran and ensure that they comply with this agreement. >> i see alex smiling. did he get hood winked? >> well, we're going to find out. but donna just said something terribly important. that is in six months she expects to -- a deal that's going to dismantle things. right now, there are democrats, not just republicans in congress who are going to push through tougher sapgss. if the administration wants to avoid that, they need to listen to donna. they need to put out now, what do we expect in six months?
7:35 am
what does this administration want that deal in six months to look like? is it going to have a rom back of the centrifuges? are he going to have to give up more of the uranium that they've enriched? are they going to stop building the heavy water nuclear reactor which can produce plutonium. and i think donna is exactly right. what does this administration want? that's what the news media wants to be pushing the -- >> wow, this is on record. donna and alex coming together. >> bipartisan here. >> i do believe this is a smart way of approaching it. because the alternative right now is something that no american wants. we don't want a war. but the president said all options remain on the table. >> let me get you to the president. obama's approval ratings brutal. worst yet for managing our country to not being decisive.
