Over the last few days, folks have been anticipating the effects of Gordon, that was originally predicted to make landfall as a Category 1 hurricane.  Thankfully, it slowed and was downgraded to a tropical storm before hitting the Mississippi and Alabama coasts last night.

But airlines are still issuing travel waivers for flights today and tomorrow (September 5 and 6, 2018, depending on the airline).

Headed to the Gulf Coast?  Check With Your Airline to See If You’re Eligible for a Travel Waiver

As of this morning, Gordon continues to spread heavy rain, and according to The Weather Channel, flooding rain is possible through Thursday, September 6, 2018, from the Florida panhandle to Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

What Does Tropical Storm Gordon Mean for Travelers?

Alaska AirlinesAmerican AirlinesDelta, Frontier, JetBlue, SouthwestSpirit Airlines, and United Airlines have all issued travel advisories allowing travelers to change flight plans without paying change fees.  And in some cases, they’ll even waive the difference in fare for your rebooked flight.

I recommend checking each airline’s website to confirm if you’re eligible to make a change.
