Delta, Southwest waive fees for Atlanta flight changes during storm

With winter weather coming that could bring snow Tuesday, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines are waiving fees for changing Atlanta flights during the storm.

Atlanta-based Delta says the weather could disrupt flights Tuesday and Wednesday in Atlanta, where the airline operates its largest hub.

The airline has already canceled 170 flights scheduled for Tuesday.

Delta is allowing travelers with flights booked to, from or through Atlanta for January 29 or 30 to make a change to their travel plans without paying a change fee, with certain restrictions.

Dallas-based Southwest, the second-largest carrier at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, also canceled some of its flights and warned that flights could be delayed, diverted or canceled on Tuesday and Wednesday in Atlanta.

Southwest is allowing passengers with flights booked on those days to rebook without paying an additional charge, with certain restrictions.

As Atlanta prepares for the Super Bowl this weekend, the National Weather Service says snow accumulation is possible.

But Atlanta isn't the only place where flights could be disrupted by winter storms. Delta and Southwest have also issued advisories for those with flights booked to, from or through Chicago, the upper Midwest and the Northeast.
