MINNEAPOLIS — With a winter storm warning in effect for the Twin Cities beginning Tuesday, airline travelers will want to keep their eye on their flights and might want to take advantage of weather waivers to avoid cancellations and delays.
Though airlines have to compensate travelers for oversold or overbooked flights, there are very few protections for changes made due to weather.
On Monday afternoon, Delta Airlines has issued a weather waiver for flights to and from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport due to a winter storm. On Tuesday, American Airlines followed suit, offering free changes for eligible flights.
The impacted travel date is Nov. 27.
The ticket has to be reissued on or before Nov. 29.
You have to start re-booking your travel no later than Nov. 29.
Delta is offering travelers with the following options, according to their website:
1. Remain on your current flight
2. Change to a different flight.
3. Cancel your trip and use the value towards a future flight
