Airlines already canceling flights ahead of Tuesday's blizzard

Posted March 15, 2017

USA airlines canceled more than 6,000 flights Monday and Tuesday ahead of the late-winter storm.

United Airlines is offering travelers flying through Chicago O'Hare and airports in the northeastern USA through March 15 the chance to change their flight without fee for new flights departing on or before March 17 in the same cabin class between the original city pair. JetBlue, American Airlines, Republic, and United have all waived their regular change fees for travelers affected by Stella; Southwest doesn't charge waive fees in general.

"If most of the flights today are canceled, then they are playing catch-up over the next few days", said Joe McBride, the spokesman for the Kansas City International Airport. If forecasts are accurate, it's possible that airports like New York JFK, New York LaGuardia, Newark Liberty and Boston Logan could halt all flight operations for much of the day Tuesday.

Trump's Firing of 46 US Attorneys Isn't Unprecedented
The freakish insinuation came as the network was bemoaning the firing of Obama-appointed US Attorney Preet Bharara. Trump tweets is "outside of [his] control" and that the congressional investigation will clear up the truth.

As of 11 a.m. EDT, almost every LaGuardia flight scheduled for Tuesday has been cancelled, but only 772 of 1,200 flights at JFK have been cancelled, raising the possibility that some flights later in the day could operate.

Thousands of flights to and from the American east coast have already been cancelled since Monday. Flights from Charlotte to Washington D.C. and Philadelphia were also canceled.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for northeast New Jersey, southeast NY and southern CT.

Trump to host China President at his Florida resort
If the plans are confirmed, Xi will be the second foreign leader to be invited to Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. Trump has also written to Xi since he took office on January 20, seeking "constructive ties".

Republic Airlines has canceled 137 flights, which account for 17 percent of its Tuesday flights. "Aviation travel will likely be disrupted". Many flights out of St. Louis Airport pass through O'Hare or Chicago Midway airports.

Most affected airlines offer re-booking for flights, without charging for a fee.

It's business as usual Monday at Newark, Philadelphia and the two New York City airports.
