With New Storm Pending, Airlines Take No Chances

Posted:

Major airlines are scrapping flights in and out of the New York area ahead of the second significant storm in little more than a week.  United, the world's largest airline, is suspending most service here starting at noon Wednesday due to a winter storm forecast for the region. It warns that bad weather will likely cause more delays and cancellations throughout the Northeast.  American Airlines is shutting down in New York at 3 p.m. Wednesday. It's also stopping flights to and from Philadelphia at noon.  Most other airlines, including Delta Air Lines Inc. and JetBlue Airways Corp., are asking passengers to reschedule their Northeast flights for a later date. They're waiving the usual change fees of up to $150.  Superstorm Sandy last week led to about 24,000 flight cancellations.
