Here we go again: airlines are canceling flights over the next couple of days starting today as a result of the latest round of winter weather to impact the midwestern and northeastern United States — as well as southeastern Canada — where snowfall accumulation ix expected to total as much as 12 inches in some locations. FlyerTalk members will definitely be affected, as evidenced in the following discussions listed below:

 

Flight delays are expected to continue through Wednesday; so if you have a flight scheduled, your flight could be delayed or canceled — and you may be eligible for a waiver of a fee to change your itinerary.

Snow accumulation is expected in at least 28 states from Colorado to Maine and five provinces due to this latest winter storm. Cities expected to be impacted the most include Detroit, Kansas City and Cleveland; while cities such as Chicago, New York, Toronto, Omaha, Buffalo, Halifax and Boston will expect less snowfall — but enough to delay or cancel flights.

Meanwhile, cities such as Oklahoma City, Philadelphia, Cincinnati and Washington are expected to experience mixed precipitation, which could include snow mixed with rain or ice.

Portions of the northeastern United States already received approximately eight inches of snow today. Flights have already been delayed or canceled as a result.

Flight delays and cancellations are expected throughout the day on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 4 and 5, 2014; so if you have a flight scheduled, your flight could be delayed or canceled — and you may be eligible for a waiver of a fee to change your itinerary. Check with the airline which operates your flight, just to be certain about your travel plans.
