Winter Storm Gail — New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said “has the potential to be a real whopper” — has prompted Delta Air Lines to issue a travel weather waiver for almost 20 northeast airports.
Cities included in the weather waiver are:
- Albany, NY (ALB)
- Allentown, PA (ABE)
- Baltimore, MD (BWI)
- Boston, MA (BOS)
- Burlington, VT (BTV)
- Charlottesville, VA (CHO)
- Harrisburg, PA (MDT)
- Hartford, CT (BDL)
- New York – LaGuardia, NY (LGA)
- New York – Kennedy, NY (JFK)
- Newark, NJ (EWR)
- Philadelphia, PA (PHL)
- Portland, ME (PWM)
- Roanoke, VA (ROA)
- Rochester, NY (ROC)
- State College, PA (SCE)
- Syracuse, NY (SYR)
- Washington DC – Dulles (IAD)
- Washington DC – Reagan (DCA)
The impacted travel dates are Wednesday, December 16 – Thursday, December 17. Tickets must be reissued by Sunday, December 20. Rebooked travel must begin no later than the 20th, as well.
Delta (the airline) says that when “rebooked travel occurs on or before December 20, 2020 in the same cabin of service as originally booked, the fare difference will be waived.”
Plus, it waived change fees for most domestic tickets. If your ticket somehow doesn’t qualify (i.e. Basic Economy), this could give you a little extra protection.
