Airlines offer refunds, waivers ahead of east coast winter storm

If you’re planning on traveling to the East Coast this weekend, you may want to think again.

With a potentially historic snowstorm barreling toward the Washington D.C. region on Friday and potentially affecting much of the East Coast, U.S. airlines are warning travelers to check websites and social media for flight status updates and schedule changes.

Domestic carriers including American, United, Delta, Southwest and JetBlue are already bracing for the winter weather, offering travel waivers and refunds for customers traveling to, from or through cities affected by the expected upcoming snowstorm. So what does that mean for you? It could mean changing your flight without paying a fee or the airline refunding your entire trip purchase.

But like anything else, it’s all in the details, so see below what some airlines are offering customers ahead of the storm.

And one thing all the airlines have in common? These ticket waivers or refunds only work if your ticket includes an airport affected by the storm, so make sure to check the full list at American, Southwest, Delta, United and JetBlue.
