Tropical Storm Isaac Grounds Hundreds of Flights

Airlines grounded hundreds of flights departing from Florida because of Tropical Storm Isaac yesterday. More cancellations and delays are expected today.

We’ve seen conflicting reports on the total number of canceled flights coming out of Florida. But according to the Associated Press, 589 flights departing from Miami and Fort Lauderdale were canceled, in addition to more flights from other South Florida airports. More than 600 flights have been canceled overall.

Fortunately, if your travel plans have been affected, you have options. As is usually the case when big storms affect a large number of flights, most airlines are offering flyers the chance to change their plans without having to pay change fees. Even notoriously customer-unfriendly Spirit is waiving change fees for select itineraries.
