CAL allows ‘bad weather’ changes

Caribbean Airlines Ltd is advising passengers booked and ticketed to travel today to North America that they will be allowed to make changes to their reservations because of bad weather in the United States.
Bands of heavy rain, ice and snow were upending some holiday travel plans on the east coast of the United States yesterday as millions of Americans took to the roads, skies and rails for Thanksgiving, the Associated Press reported. As of early yesterday, more than 230 flights to, from or within the United States had been cancelled, according to the air tracking website
Most of the scrapped flights were in or out of three major Northeast hubs: Newark Liberty International, Philadelphia International and LaGuardia. In an advisory, CAL said passengers will be permitted to make changes to their resrvations without penalty subject to several conditons: • They must already be in possession of a ticket with confirmed reservations issued on or before Monday, November 25, 2013. • Booked to travel to/from New York during the period November 27th – 28th. • Changes may be made up to today. • Caribbean Airlines will only give full refunds if the flight is cancelled but if passengers don’t want to travel, they can get a refund with the US$20 administration fee. • Caribbean Airlines will not be responsible for arrangements to/from an alternate airport or for any hotel/overnight expenses incurred. • Passengers with totally unused tickets who elect not to travel during the specified period may have their tickets placed on hold for future travel on Caribbean Airlines up to one year from the original date of issue.
