USA: Tropical storm may impact travel

Tropical Storm Gordon is expected to make landfall in the US along the corridor from Louisiana to Mississippi this week, according to AccuWeather.

Delta are advising passengers that the storm may impact travel in the following cities: Baton Rouge, Destin, Gulfport, Lafayette, Mobile, New Orleans, Panama City, and Pensacola.

Passengers can cancel their trip as a result of flight cancellation or significant delay (90 minutes or more), and will be refunded for the unused portion of their ticket. For flights that are not cancelled, passengers can make a one-time change on the ticket without a fee, if they are scheduled to travel to, from, or through the above destinations on a Delta, Delta Connection, or Delta-coded flight.

This applies to flights impacted on September 4-5. Tickets must be reissued on or before September 9, with travel beginning no later than September 9 as well.

If flights are rescheduled for a date beyond September 9, a change fee will be waived, but a difference in fare may apply. Final travel must be completed by end of ticket validity, one year for the original date of issue.

If rescheduling cannot be done within these guidelines, customers can cancel their booking and apply the unused value of the ticket on a new ticket. This is available for a one-year period from when the ticket was originally issued.
