As reported by the Weather Channel, Winter Storm Frona is set to bring travel havoc to the Northeast through this weekend!
If you are traveling home this weekend, as I’m sure many are coming off their New Years trips; you may want to call ahead to see if your flight has been impacted by the weather.
Delta has already issued a one-time change to your ticket without fee if you are scheduled to travel to, from, or through the following destination(s) on Delta, Delta Connection®, or Delta-coded flights during the specified time periods listed below.
Winter Storm Frona Bringing Travel Nightmares?
Here’s what Delta’s website says about Storm Frona travel impact:

Even if your flight is not canceled, you may make a one-time change to your ticket without fee if you are scheduled to travel to, from, or through the following destination(s) on Delta, Delta Connection®, or Delta-coded flights during the specified time periods listed below.
American hasn’t updated their website to include the storms in the NE, for travel exceptions due to weather go here.
United hasn’t updated their website to include the storms in the NE, the only thing they have listed right now is Denver. If they make updates, you can go here to see them.
Cities/Regions that may be affected by delays:
Denver, CO – Deicing delays possible.
Note: United Airlines will do everything practical to ensure we provide the most accurate flight status information at all times. However, situations change quickly and many factors affect our scheduled operations. Please understand that a flight listed as “Delayed” may, depending on the circumstances, depart “On Time”. We suggest you always check-in for the original scheduled departure time of your flight.
Flying US Airways?
US Airways hasn’t updated their website to include the Storm Frona in the NE yet either. You can go here to see their travel advisories as they are updated.
Check their Facebook page for updates. That’s where they posted weather updates over Christmas. I didn’t see any flexible accommodations for flights impacted by Frona on their website.
If you are flying this weekend, don’t let the weather make your travels a nightmare. The best thing you can do is stay on top of your flight delays by contacting the airline and knowing the policies. It looks like Delta is being the most proactive this time around. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the rest follow. Good luck and safe travels!
