US: Delta cancels 80 flights due to hurricane
11 Oct 2018 - by
Delta Air Lines has cancelled 80 flights due to Hurricane Michael.
On Wednesday (October 10) the airline cancelled all flights in Tallahassee, Panama City and Destin - Fort Walton Beach as well as in Albany, Valdosta and Dothan. It plans to resume flights at those airports this morning if facilities and infrastructure are adequate.
Delta does not anticipate disruptions at its Atlanta hub as the storm is predicted to turn northeast. “Atlanta will see rain and high winds overnight Wednesday into Thursday, but those will remain within viable limits during Delta’s normal operating hours at Hartsfield-Jackson International,” according to Delta.
On Wednesday, Delta expanded its waiver of change fees to Brunswick, Columbus and Savannah, Ga. and Columbia, S.C., in addition to Albany, Augusta, Dothan, Fort Walton Beach, Mobile, Panama City, Pensacola, Tallahassee and Valdosta.
The waiver allows passengers with flights booked to, from or connecting through those cities from October 9-11 to make a one-time change in their travel plans without charge. Ticket must be reissued on or before October 14. Rebooked travel must begin no later than October 14.
If passengers wish to cancel their trip as a result of a flight cancellation or significant delay (90 minutes or more), they are entitled to a refund for the unused portion of their ticket.
