When will the airline cancel my flight?

Last updated on April 25, 2023

In general, airline tickets are nonrefundable and nonchangeable, but there are unique circumstances which may trigger an airline to cancel your flight. The airline will typically cancel a flight if they expect the flight to be significantly delayed, if there is a known systemwide mechanical issue, or if the flight is no longer needed. In the event that your flight is canceled, you should receive an email or text notification from the airline.
