Want to get caught in an airport during a “multi-day, multi-region, potentially historic and destructive winter storm“? Thought so. Luckily, airlines are being extraordinarily lenient right now, and you can likely cancel or rebook for free.

More than 2,100 miles of the country may see a foot or more of snow this week, and as of last night, at least 3,000 flights had been canceled across the U.S. in preparation. Luckily, The Consumerist blog offers links to nearly every major airline’s storm-specific policy page. Southwest Airlines, for example, is allowing many customers to fly standby on any flight, up to 14 days from their original departure, while Delta is offering free re-books and delayed departure for those in any of about 20 cities.
