6 p.m. Monday update:
For the fourth time in the last three weeks, Delta teams are keeping an eye on and preparing for a nor’easter that is forecasted to disrupt operations Wednesday at airports along the U.S. east coast, stretching from Washington D.C. to as far north as Manchester, N.H.
In preparation for the storm, Delta has issued a winter weather waiver that allows customers traveling to, from or through affected cities Tuesday and Wednesday to make one-time changes to their travel plans.
The airline’s team of meteorologists now expect the storm to bring approximately three to six inches of snow to Washington, D.C. with 10 inches possible at the New York metro airports starting in the early morning hours Wednesday and tapering off Wednesday night. Boston could see as much as a foot of snow by the time the storm ends there Thursday. Periods of mixed freezing precipitation are also forecasted.
Ahead of Wednesday’s storm in the Northeast, Delta will proactively cancel flights at the airline’s New York hubs and Boston airport where snow and icy conditions are forecasted. Additional cancellations and flight delays are expected in Boston as well. Details of flight cancellations are forthcoming and customers are encouraged to check Delta.com or the Fly Delta Mobile App for the latest flight status.
Delta will also strategically re-position aircraft away from northeastern airports, preventing the airplanes from becoming covered by snow, making them available to quickly resume flights once the storm passes.
