USA Today reports that United Airlines will be shutting down on Tuesday at several airports in the Northeast. U.S. Airways will also be halting operations in the Northeast on January 27. Delta has already grounded at least 600 flights for Monday, and JetBlue has cancelled more than 730 flights on Monday and Tuesday.
FOX News reports that most major airlines, including Delta and U.S. Airways, are allowing customers to re-book their flights without paying a penalty. Policies vary by airline, but most will not charge a change fee if the cancelled flight was scheduled for this week.
More cancellations are expected for Monday and Tuesday with the National Weather Service forecasting massive amounts of snow and blizzard conditions on Monday and Tuesday. New York City, Providence and Boston could see as much as two-to-three feet of snow. Philadelphia is expected to get between 14 and 18 inches.
