I’ve been on high alert as I’m traveling from Tampa to New Jersey this week to see family for Christmas. Winter storms look to create disruptions and cancellations later this week as travelers attempt to get together with family and friends for Christmas. Airlines are trying to get in front of this by issuing travel waivers for passengers with some flexibility around their plans.
Alaska has a waiver in effect for passengers traveling to/from Seattle.
AA has several waivers in effect for the Northeastern US and Midwestern US.

Midwestern US waiver
Delta Air Lines

Northwest Mountain Region waiver
Atlantic and Northeast Region waiver
JetBlue has issued a waiver for several Midwestern cities.
Southwest has issued waivers for the Northeast as well as several Rocky Mountain and Midwestern cities.
United is perhaps the most cautious in its waivers as it has issued several for
East Coast waiver
Central and Northwest waiver
Anthony’s Take: There is a good chance that there will be significant delays and cancellations later this week just in time for Christmas. If your plans are flexible, it might be less stressful to travel in advance.
