If you find that your flight is canceled on any airline, you should first keep calm and seek answers. Most people immediately visit the airline's desk at the airport, but you can temporarily avoid the line by visiting the airline's website for information regarding the delays. The airline will most likely post a notice to announce waiving of fees. Check the airline's website for information regarding the waiver. You can also call the airline's reservation department to book a new flight.
Travelers who need refunds can possibly receive their money back. Just call the reservations line. It's always a good idea to have the airline's reservations number in your cell phone and make certain that your phone is well-charged before you travel. Of course, if your bags have been checked, you can't avoid going to the counter to get them back.
