Check Flight Cancellations, Know Your Rights

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Flight canceled? It's entirely possible, even if you haven't received a text or email from your airline yet. FlightAware.com, a flight-tracking service, has reported 950 delayed flights in the U.S. and 1,800 cancellations so far Friday.

Check Flight Aware here to see if your flight has been grounded.

Airports with the highest number of cancellations are in the Northeast. New York's LaGuardia Airport is first, followed by Newark Liberty International, Boston Logan International, Philadelphia International and New York's JFK. Chicago O'Hare is also experiencing cancellations and delays.

In the case of bad weather, airlines issue flexible policies that allow travelers to take their trips at a later date. These policies also waive change fees, even on the lowest-priced, most restrictive tickets.

Here are links to individual airline policies:

If you prefer to cancel your trip altogether, you are entitled to a refund or a flight credit in the amount you paid for your ticket.
