Delta Air Lines is allowing customers whose trips may be cancelled or delayed due to storms over New York City and Philadelphia a one-time chance to make changes to their intinerary Nov. 6-8 without charge, the airline announced.

The airline encourages passengers to consider leaving earlier, rerouting their trips or postpostponing them.

Customers on Delta-ticketed flights to, from or through LaGuardia, John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty International and Philadelphia International airports can rebook with the same origin and destination.

Delays are likely at these airports because of high winds and heavy rain. Delta will proactively reduce flight schedules to minimize delays.

Customers may book new flights before or after original travel dates as long as they are ticketed and rescheduled for travel on or before Nov. 16, 2012.

Customers traveling in impacted markets should check their flight status via or the Fly Delta app before arriving at the airport.

Changes to origin or destination may result in a fare increase, and any fare difference between the original ticket and the new ticket will be collected at the time of rebooking. Customers whose flights are cancelled may request refunds.
