Delta Issues Midwest Winter Waiver

Winter Weather Prompts Delta to Waive Change Fees

A brutal winter storm is in the works for the Midwest United States.  Delta Air Lines has issued a waiver for passengers who are likely to be affected by winter weather.   The airline encourages customers to consider postponing or re-routing their travel to avoid inconvenience from flight cancellations and delays.

Passengers on Delta ticketed flights to, from or through the following cities February 23-24 may immediately rebook for travel with the same origin and destination before or after their original travel dates as long as new flights are ticketed and rescheduled with travel beginning by Feb. 27, 2012.

  • Cedar Rapids, Iowa (CID)
  • Chicago O’Hare (ORD)
  • Chicago Midway (MDW)
  • Detroit Metro (DTW)
  • Des Moines, Iowa (DSM)
  • Flint, Michigan (FNT)
  • Fort Dodge, Iowa (FOD)
  • Grand Rapids, Michigan (GRR)
  • Lansing, Michigan (LAN)
  • Kalamazoo, Michigan (AZO)
  • Madison, Wisconsin (MSN)

  • Milwaukee, Wisconsin (MKE)
  • Moline, IL – Qaud Cities (MLI)
  • Sioux City, Iowa (SUX)
  • South Bend, Indiana (SBN)
  • Waterloo, Iowa (ALO)


Flight delays are possible at these airports as a result of winter weather.  Delta may proactively cancel flights to minimize delays, especially at their Detroit Metro Hub (DTW).

If your travels involve a change of planes in Detroit, we suggest you attempt to re-route your travel via another Delta Hub including Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Intl (ATL), New York Kennedy (JFK) Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP), Salt Lake City Intl (SLC), Memphis Intl (MEM), or Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky Intl Airport (CVG).

Delta encourages customers to make changes and manage their travel at  Customers traveling in impacted markets should check their flight status at before arriving at the airport.

Changes to origin or destination may result in a fare increase and any resulting fare difference would be collected at the time of rebooking.  Customers whose flights are cancelled may request refunds or re-schedule travel for a later day.
