Major disruptions are expected on Tuesday as heavy snowfall hits cities across the Northeast. Airlines are already canceling more than 1,100 flights, with Boston expecting up to a foot of snow and New York City facing its heaviest snowfall in over two years. JetBlue and Republic Airways are among the airlines most affected by the cancellations.
In response to the storm, several major US airlines, including American, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, and United, have waived change fees for affected passengers. Passengers can check their airline’s website for specific details on how to reschedule their flights without penalty. While passengers are entitled to a full refund for canceled flights, there is not always compensation for delays.
The winter storm has already caused major disruptions in other parts of the world as well. In the UK and Ireland, a similar storm led to some unusual journeys for passengers, including being diverted hundreds of miles away from their intended destinations. As travelers prepare for this impending storm in the Northeast, it is important to stay informed about flight changes and cancellations in order to make any necessary adjustments to travel plans.
