Feb 13, 2024
Nor’easter Winter Storm Causes Airlines to Cancel 1,100 Flights

Up to 1,000 flights have already been canceled due to the winter storm in the Northeast. New York City and Boston are expected to see heavy snowfall on Tuesday, with up to six inches in New York and as much as a foot in Boston. Airlines are allowing travelers to change their flights without a fee, including American, JetBlue, Southwest, Spirit, and United. Passengers can check their airline’s website for specific details.

The storm is causing major disruption across the US, with over 1,100 flights canceled in total. JetBlue and Republic Airways are among the airlines most affected by the cancellations. While passengers are entitled to a full refund for canceled flights, there is not always compensation for delays. Passengers should be prepared for potential delays or cancellations when traveling during this time.

A similar storm in the UK and Ireland led to some unusual journeys for passengers, including being diverted hundreds of miles away from their intended destinations. It’s important for travelers to stay informed about any changes or updates from their airline before heading out on their journey during this time.
