Delta’s Meteorology team is keeping an eye on a winter storm system that is expected to bring frozen and mixed precipitation to parts of the Midwest later this week. The airline’s operations teams are not planning for any cancellations as the forecast model data comes in, though schedule adjustments remain a possibility as a result of inclement weather conditions.

Ahead of the storm, the airline proactively issued two separate travel waivers for Minneapolis and for 14 cities in the Midwest.

The waivers allow customers with flexibility in their travel plans to make a one-time change to their itinerary without incurring a change fee.

Customers are encouraged to check their flight status on or the Fly Delta Mobile App. Customers can also get updates sent directly to their mobile device or by email with One-Time Flight Notification.
