Travellers flying to Boston in the coming days are being allowed to reschedule their flights, as airlines make allowances following the recent bombings in the city. Boston's airport and hotels are operating as usual, but airlines including Delta, American Airlines and British Airways are giving passengers extra leniency if they wish to change the date or destination of their flights.
British Airways has stated it will allow passengers booked onto flights to and from Boston the chance to alter the date of their flight, or use the cost of their cancelled flight towards another flight which must depart by the end of Thursday 18th April. Delta offered passengers a similar arrangement, allowing bookings to be changed up to the 17th April, or rebooked up to the 20th. American Airlines is offering passengers a change of date between 16th-20th April, or a refund of vouchers for the airline.
Virgin Atlantic is retaining its usual cancellation fee for today's flights to Boston, while passengers affected by the delayed flight from Boston to London yesterday (15th) are being allowed to claim a refund or rebook. However, Virgin said it had as yet received no requests for cancelled flights.
DialAFlight is currently serving affected clients in the area, working with airlines and passengers to make the process of rebooking or cancelling flights as easy as possible.
