    Most of you have more flying resources than I. Tomorrow I have a new hire flying from Chattanooga to DFW on American. Anybody see delays I don't see?
    Thanks, ttb

    No problem likely just based on the weather forecasts and projected storm path, IMO.

    Funny that Spirit actually has one of the most reasonable policies. The article does not tell Spirit's full story:

    Spirit Airlines will waive the change fee and difference in fare, provided that customers rebook their travel plans before the date and time of their original reservation, and travel on or before September 27, 2012.​

    Customers who wish to move their travel beyond September 27, 2012, will not be charged a change fee, however any difference in fare will apply.​

    I think that the article's summary of United's policy is a little misleading when compared to the wording for some of the other airlines. For United, "...by this weekend" = by Friday for Florida and the Bahamas, or by Saturday for the Gulf Coast. What makes United so much better is the option for a refund even if your flight is not cancelled or delayed.

    For cancelled flights, this policy applies for all airlines:
    "If their flight is canceled, the airlines must offer a refund."​

    It's rare to read something positive about Spirit. Thanks for sharing.

    Ditto that. I actually have a house there AND am scheduled to be there this weekend. I hope everyone stays safe & dry AND that I get to visit my beloved city too!

    I'd be less worried if they hadn't ignored the engineers advice and rebuilt all of those houses in the Ninth ward. I believe Brad Pitt's charity did most of that. It being what it is I'm really worried and hope everyone comes out of this OK.
