Some holiday travelers will be forced to change their plans as winter weather dumps several inches of snow on the state Wednesday.
Passengers who want to change their flights as a precaution can do so free of charge if they're flying with one of the airlines listed below.
- American Airlines/American Eagle: A representative told NBC Connecticut that flights affected by the Northeast Thanksgiving Storm will be allowed to change their flights free of charge. Travelers can check for qualifying locations online.
- Delta Airlines: Even if your flight is not canceled, you can make a one-time change to your ticket without being charged if you are scheduled to travel to, from or through certain locations, including Connecticut.
- JetBlue: Due to inclement weather forecasted to impact the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, we will waive change/cancel fees and fare differences for customers traveling to, from or through the destinations listed on the airline's website.
- Southwest Airlines: Southwest doesn’t charge fees to swap tickets, but a fare difference could apply to customers who are making the changes on their own, according to an airline representative. During inclement weather, Southwest cancels flights in the areas where there will be the biggest impact, at which point a travel advisory will go into effect. Passengers can check their flight’s status online.
- United Airlines: United Airlines has issued a waiver for travel scheduled for tomorrow for airports along the East Coast. The exception policy is available online.
- U.S. Airways/U.S. Airways Express: Customers can change their flights free of charge if they are ticketed to travel to, from, or through Bradley or any of the airports listed here.
Some airlines are not compensating customers for fare differences. Customers should check with their airlines to confirm that their flights qualify for free ticket transfers.
