2. Check your airline website. You do not have to take impending weather lying down. Well maybe after that martini. When applicable, airlines post a Travel Advisory on their homepage that details which airports may be affected by weather during a range of dates. The rules differ, but most airlines allow you to change your
date-of-death travel itinerary proactively without any fees. This means you can bump your departure date up a day or two for free at the mere threat of a storm. Bossy thought you had to wait for a flight to be cancelled before seeking a cost-free alternative but she was wrong — as wrong as a 196,000-pound aircraft lifting up into the sky.
4. Check the weather sites. This one has a trip planner which includes an hour-by-hour forecast of your departure and destination airports. So fun to watch the Dew Point rise. Just like Bossy’s anxiety.
