With massive Winter Storm Juno bearing down on the East Coast, I wanted to provide you with a handy consolidated resource of the current travel advisories and flight change/refund policies of the major airlines so that you don’t get stranded this week.

Winter Storm Juno is going to strike
Winter Storm Juno is going to strike, with as much as 2-3 feet of snow in some places.

If you have upcoming travel anywhere in the affected zone (from Downeast Maine to the Jersey shore, including New York City, Boston, Providence, Hartford and Portland) and your schedule is flexible, I would try to change your plans as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the less chance you’ll have of rebooking anytime soon as the airlines scramble to adjust post-storm flight schedules and their call centers become overwhelmed—so it’s better to be proactive.

The major airlines have already posted links to their advisories and change policies specific to Juno on their homepages, but here’s a consolidated list by airline of affected dates, airports and what fees you can expect to be waived as well as contact information for making changes.
