Delta has issued a weather waiver for those in / out / through parts of the Caribbean starting today the 24th and running until the 26th for:

  • Port-au-Prince, HT (PAP)
  • Punta Cana, DR (PUJ)
  • San Juan, PR (SJU)
  • Santiago, DR (STI)
  • Santo Domingo, DR (SDQ)
  • St. Maarten, SX (SXM)
  • St. Thomas, VI (STT)

The rest of the info about the allowed changes tells us that:

“When rescheduled travel occurs beyond August 31, 2015, the change fee will be waived. However, a difference in fare may apply. Final travel must be completed by end of ticket validity, one year from date of original issue. If travel is not able to be rescheduled within these guidelines, customers may cancel their reservation and apply any unused value of the ticket toward the purchase of a new ticket for a period of one year from the original ticket issuance. Applicable change fee and fare difference will apply for new travel dates. Final travel must be completed by end of ticket validity.  Changes to origins and destinations may result in an increase in fare. Any difference in fare between your original ticket and the new ticket will be collected at the time of booking.” – Delta.com

Tropical Storm (now) Danny seems to be weakening according to the latest from the Miami Herald:

But as with all tropical storms keep watching the track, and not just for these affected areas, and see just where Danny (or it’s remnants) ends up going next. It could well impact other areas later in the week and weekend and  we could see more free Delta waivers.

As a reminder when re-booking your tickets, look at ALL the legal routes by searching for tickets from A-B. You may want to add some stops and earn some more MQMs via better routing (SkyMiles earned will NOT change as they are spend based, but MQMS are distance based still). When you find the PERFECT flights, then call Delta and have them change you FREE to those.

Travel safe everyone! – René
