rome airport fire free delta changes

Just a heads up as I am sure most of us have seen the news about the severe fire at Terminal 3 at Rome’s airport a few days back (FCO).

  • Rome airport in chaos after fire devastates terminal – HERE
  • Rome airport reopens terminal after fire – HERE

Due to this Delta is offering a one time FREE change that is a fee free change due to the fact that you will likely be impacted if your travel includes FCO in your itinerary.

Some things to keep in mind. If you are on an award ticket, and not on Delta metal, low level space must still exist to change, that is, Delta cannot force space on partner metal but you can change and they can force space on Delta metal. This could be bad or good for you depending on your route. Just check for the BEST route for you before you call.

Have any questions about this or the mighty schedule change rule(E8), ask away! – René
