Were You Impacted by Flight Cancellations in the Northeast?

Get Where You Need to Go

Unpredictable bad weather recently stranded travelers who were taking flights in Northeast United States. What should you do? Contact the airline immediately. It's likely that the airline will allow you to change your ticket for free. For example, the recent bad weather that impacted the Northeastern region of the United States  left thousands of travelers stranded, and American Airlines announced that fliers could travel later for free. 

A news release from American Airlines states that people who were traveling on February 11 could could delay their trip and travel through Feb. 13. American Airlines routes in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Connecticut were impacted. The free ticket reissues apply to American Eagle and American Connection flights, too.

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.
