Airlines Waive Rebooking Fees for Thanksgiving Storm

See recent posts by Amanda Geronikos

As snow strikes much of the Northeast and other parts of the nation, many airlines have begun to waive change fees. One-time re-booking charges will be waived by the following airlines (restrictions may apply):

American Airlines and US Airways
New travel must occur between Nov. 25 and 27.

The waived fee is applicable for those scheduled to fly on Nov. 26 — customers can use their new tickets for travel through Nov. 28.

Rescheduled travel must occur by Nov. 28.

The fee is normally waived, but Southwest will allow customers to make an itinerary change at select airports. Travel must occur 14 days within the original itinerary date.

New travel must occur by Nov. 28. Change fees may be dropped, but a recalculated fare might apply.

United Airlines
Customers can make a one-time change by Nov. 28; rebooking fees may be dropped after that, though a recalculated fare might apply.
