Though Winter Storm Stella has passed the northeastern United States, some flight cancellations are set to continue today. Limited flight operations resumed from New York’s LaGuardia and JFK airports Tuesday, but Delta said it still plans to cancel another 40 flights today. Southwest Airlines cancelled more than 1,300 flights across the United States from Monday through Wednesday. 

Here are the latest cancellation waivers and refund policies:

Travelers scheduled to fly through airports in the northeastern U.S. and Chicago O’Hare on United Airlines today can rebook without fee (and any difference in fare will be waived) for new flights departing through March 19 from the northeastern U.S. and March 17 from Chicago.

Delta will refund the unused portion of a travelers’ ticket if their flight is cancelled or delayed by 90 minutes or more. They can also change their flight without fee. The new ticket must be reissued on or before March 19 with rebooked travel to take place no later than March 19. 

American Airlines is offering a change waiver for flights through Chicago today if travelers bought their ticket by March 12 and can travel through March 17. Travelers set to fly through the northeastern U.S. today can change their flight without fee if they booked by March 10 and can travel through March 17. In both cases the new flight must be between the original city pair, and travelers must rebook in the same cabin or pay the difference. 

Southwest Airlines customers set to fly today through affected airports can rebook in the original class of service or travel standby within 14 days of their original date of travel between the original city-pairs.
