DL even took care of rebooking me at no charge when I missed a KL flight booked with DL due to a 3-hour WN delay... I think that the "flat tire rule" is still alive and well with most carriers, as long as you don't make a habit of missing flights.

Because the second ticket was non-refundable and I didn't want to pay the $200 change fee. And the cancellations were weather related (legitimately), so I wouldn't imagine they would give me a voucher to cover the $200.

Thank you all
I book separate tickets like this all the time as you can save tons of $$. Just last year was flying RDU-JFK then JFK-LHR on separate tix with about 2 hrs connecting time. RDU-JFK starts getting delayed, ask at the AC and it was zero problem getting rebooked onto the nonstop RDU-LHR.
