United Airlines Issues Travel Waivers for Passengers Affected by Winter Storm Harper


Cold temperatures have been forecasted for the upcoming weekend in most parts of the United States. Here in Texas, temps are forecasted in the teens from Saturday through Monday, without precipitation. Other parts of the country will not have it as dry. Winter Storm Harvey is expected to bring blizzard conditions to parts of the Plains through the northeastern United States. The weather will undoubtedly affect travel so United Airlines has issued travel waivers for the following locations (there are three separate waivers):

Final Word

The other major airlines have not issued travel waivers yet, although I expect it to happen soon. This weather will definitely ruined plans made for the long weekend. Stay safe and try not to be stuck in an airport during the storm.
