Flight Cancellation Policies, Airline by Airline

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- With more than 2,000 flights already cancelled and nearly 700 delays in the U.S. -- and more expected for Wednesday -- what’s a traveler with a flight to do?

Airlines issue flexible policies in the case of bad weather, which typically means you can change or cancel your flight, even if you’re traveling on a non-refundable ticket.

Airline policies vary, but most require that if you change plans, you take your flight within a week or so. If you’re not able to postpone your trip, it’s time to hit the phones and social media. Twitter has become one of the most effective ways to contact an airline and change a trip.

Here are Twitter handles for some airlines:

  • @AlaskaAir
  • @AllegiantTravel
  • @AmericanAir
  • @DeltaAssist
  • @FlyFrontier
  • @JetBlue
  • @united
  • @USAirways
  • @southwest
  • @SpiritAirlines
