Following last week’s powerful nor’easter, another late winter storm is set to cause flight disruptions across the northeastern United States and New England.

According to the latest forecast from Accuweather, the midweek storm won’t be as powerful as last week’s “bomb cyclone,” but it could still bring heavy snow and widespread travel disruptions to the northeast, especially in the coastal mid-Atlantic and southern New England, from Wednesday into Thursday. The wind, however, will be less intense than last week’s storm.

Travel Waivers

A number of airlines have issued change waivers in anticipation of the storm.

American Airlines is allowing customers set to fly through affected airports March 7 – 8 to rebook through March 11 between the same city pair in the same cabin (or pay the difference). The airline has also extended a travel waiver for yesterday’s storm over Minneapolis to customers scheduled to fly March 6.

On Delta, customers scheduled to fly March 7 – 8 can rebook for travel through March 11, with the new ticket to be reissued on or before that date. The airline has extended its Minneapolis travel waiver as well.

United Airlines is allowing customers scheduled to fly March 7 – 8 to rebook through March 14, in the originally ticketed cabin (any fare class) and between the same city pair.

Customers flying Southwest Airlines March 6 – 8 can rebook in the original class of service or travel standby within 14 days of their original date of travel between the original city pair.

On JetBlue, customers scheduled to fly March 7 can rebook through March 10.
