Due to Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Jose and Hurricane Katia airlines may be offering waivers to change, cancel or postpone your flights. Because hold times are long during weather disruptions, please use the list of airline travel advisory links below to quickly determine what your airline is offering for your specific itinerary.
As a general rule of thumb, most airlines go by these guidelines:
1. If your flight is canceled you have the option of obtaining a full refund.
2. If you would like to reschedule your trip, you can do so without having to pay a penalty, although in some cases you may have to pay a difference in fare (if you’re changing to a more expensive itinerary, for example). Most airlines are allowing travelers to postpone flights for a few days, until the storm clears.
3. If your flight is not in the waiver period, the airlines currently expect to operate normally. However, please continue to monitor your flight status as travel nears. Airlines may update flight statuses as weather conditions change.
