Some U.S. airlines are giving travelers a way out if they want to scrap their plans due to a huge storm set to hit the East Coast.
JetBlue, US Airways and Spirit Airlines are offering waivers to customers who wish to reschedule their flights without the typical fee of up to $150. Other airlines are monitoring the storm and plan updates as needed. Hurricane Sandy could blend with a winter storm to produce a so-called “Frankenstorm” along the U.S. East Coast next week. Those hoping to fly in or out of affected areas are asked to check their flight status. Call the airline if you need to change flights or cancel.
