The Getty Fire has prompted Delta Air Lines to announce a travel waiver for passengers whose trips involve at least one of five Los Angeles metro area airports.

The waiver is in effect today (Tuesday, October 29) and Wednesday, October 30.

Affected airports are:

  • Burbank – also known as Hollywood Burbank (BUR)
  • Long Beach (LGB)
  • Los Angeles International (LAX)
  • Ontario (ONT)
  • Santa Ana – Orange County – John Wayne (SNA)

Tickets must be reissued on or before November 2, with rebooked travel commencing no later than November 2, as well.

Passengers may make a one-time change without being assessed a fee, though fare differences may apply.

Visit the waiver’s alert for more information and learn about how Delta travel waivers work in general.

LAX, LGB, and SNA are all near the infamous 405 freeway (the nation’s busiest freeway). Traffic has been hampered due to the Getty Fire, which is burning near the 405 in the Sepulveda Pass, an area that sees plenty of passengers to and from LAX.

Winds are expected to reach 70 MPH tonight in some areas of LA county — adding a major threat to not just the Getty Fire, but of new blazes as well.

Quick Thank You

A number of you who know I live in Los Angeles sent messages asking if my family and I are OK.

Thank you. Your concern means so much to us.

We’re upwind of the Getty Fire and safe. (We’re still a little on edge, though, because if a fire starts north of us, that could bring trouble.)

Thank you again.
