  • American Airlines will begin offering free meals on flights — but there's a catch

- The blizzard that is bearing down on the Northeast is expected to cause flight cancelations across the region. More than 190 Wednesday flights are already off the books, mostly at Washington National, Baltimore/Washington, Boston Logan and Chicago Midway airports. But, airlines are already waiving change fees, so passengers can get a jump start on revising their travel plans.

The majority of the flights from the Blue Grass Airport are heading out on time. Anywhere between 12-18 inches of snow is expected from the northern Mid-Atlantic to Southern New England with as much as 2 feet of snow possible in some major cities. Beginning at 5:45 p.m., one flight to NY, two to Baltimore-Washington International and two to Washington, D.C., had been scrubbed. All were likely to see major schedule disruptions if forecasts are accurate.

A total of 45 Tuesday flights were canceled as of Monday evening at the Jacksonville International Airport, according to flight-tracking website FlightAware.

Travelers on Delta are entitled to a refund of the unused portion of their ticket if their flight is cancelled or significantly delayed (90 minutes or more). For travelers headed to or leaving Chicago, flights can be rebooked between now and Wednesday. The company was canceling some late Sunday arrivals to O'Hare operated by its regional affiliates, American spokesman Ross Feinstein said to Today in the Sky.

Nationwide more than 6,000 flights have been canceled Monday and Tuesday. American anticipated trying to operate most of its "mainline" schedule there Monday. Almost all rail lines would operate on a Sunday schedule.

Southwest was expected to hold all flights in the Northeast on Tuesday, and more airlines could take Southwest's lead as potential blizzard conditions hit New York City.
