Spring Break kicks into high gear this weekend. Naturally, ugly winter weather must rain snow on the festivities in certain cities.
Winter Storm Quinlan (as dubbed by The Weather Channel) will turn into a “bomb cyclone” and is set to travel for folks in some parts of the East Coast this weekend. Delta Air Lines proactively issued a travel waiver for passengers whose itineraries involve several potentially affected airports.
The waiver is in effect for travel scheduled on Saturday, March 12. (What a wonderful excuse to leave school now or Friday and start the party early!) Need plans? Come out to warm, sunny Los Angeles and attend Frequent Traveler University and the Travel & Adventure Show.
Applicable airports are:
- New York City Area:
- Newark (EWR)
- New York – Kennedy (JFK)
- New York – LaGuardia (LGA)
- White Plains (HPN)
- Rhode Island:
- Providence (PVD)
Delta will waive any applicable fare difference (within the same cabin originally booked) for those folks whose travel takes them SLC on Monday. Rebooked travel must take place March 15 or sooner.
The airline permanently waived change fees for most domestic tickets long ago. If your ticket somehow doesn’t qualify for free changes, this could give you a little extra protection.
If you’re really concerned, you might want to start making flight changes now before the ticketing lines (phone and in-person) get extra, extra, extra busy.
Remember that airlines generally don’t pay for any expenses (hotels, meals, ground transport, etc.) if you’re delayed due to weather. I hope you booked with a credit card offering good trip delay coverage or you hold travel insurance. (Or both!)
Contact Delta Air Lines for Rebooking Help
If you have questions or need to rebook travel, contact Delta Air Lines directly (not “Delta Airlines”) or the provider through whom you originally purchased travel.
