Rebooking Flights Airlines differ on Isaac rebooking policies

NEW YORK (AP) - When hurricanes, blizzards or other severe weather disrupt flights, some airlines are more accommodating than others in letting passengers rebook. Tropical Storm Isaac is sweeping into the Gulf of Mexico and all the airlines with flights to and from the region this week are waiving their normal fees for passengers to rebook trips. So-called change fees can be as high as $150 on a domestic trip. While it's nice that airlines aren't charging you to rebook, the time you have to take your trip depends on your carrier. Some airlines are giving passengers nearly a year to fly while others are requiring passengers to be on planes as quickly as Friday.
