Forecasted severe snow storms across the US East Coast have led to flight disruption over the next few days.
British Airways says it has cancelled its flights to and from New York JFK, New York Newark, and Philadelphia tomorrow (Tuesday March 14), while there will also be no flights from Heathrow to Boston – an early morning flight from Boston to London is however scheduled to operate tomorrow.
The carrier also said that “There will still be some flights to/from Washington and Baltimore but there will be some revisions to our schedules”.
BA said that passengers due to fly to the above mentioned airports on March 14 or 15, may move their flight free of charge up to March 17, even if the service is due to operate. The airline added that this policy also applies to American Airlines, Iberia and Finnair flights on those routes.
BA said that it would “look to use larger aircraft on Wednesday, where we can, to help accommodate extra customers who are not able to travel on Tuesday”.
Fellow UK carrier Virgin Atlantic has published the following advice:
“As you may be aware, heavy snow is expected in the Northeast US within the next few days. If you’re set to fly to/from the region and can change your travel plans, it may be worth considering.
“In view of the forecast weather conditions, customers booked to travel to, from or through New York John F Kennedy (JFK), Newark Liberty International (EWR), Boston Logan (BOS) or Washington Dulles (IAD) airports between 13 and 17 March who prefer to rebook may do so, without penalty.
“Rebooking is subject to availability in the same cabin for flights, and travel must be completed on or before 24 March 2017.”
