How to deal with your airline’s cancellation list
- by admin
The FAA has issued a temporary travel ban for all domestic air carriers to take advantage of its “first in, first out” system to ensure they can deliver their passengers safely.
It also said airlines will have a maximum of 24 hours to provide documentation of cancellations.
Airlines will be required to notify customers if they are affected by cancellations by Friday at 7 a.m.
ET, but the FAA said it will continue to let airlines work with carriers to resolve issues with the system.
The first of these is for the airline to verify that a flight was canceled, and then, once that information is received, the airline can contact the FAA for a waiver of the restriction, which requires airlines to provide proof of cancellation.
Airlos can also ask for a second waiver that requires the airlines to make sure they have sufficient funds in their systems to cover all cancellations, but it is not required.
The FAA also said the agency will not be able to provide a waiver until the carriers complete their due diligence on the issue.
This is a developing story.
