HUCA worked! I have been placed on the direct flight.
Now just to figure out what to do with the rental car I'm supposed to be returning to LGA...  :-\
Call them up? Ask them to waive the one way drop off fee because of the weather. "Your flight was changed due to the weather etc."

Miles or cash? How long of a stopover at CDG?

Miles, two day stopover.

My bil is in jfk since 4:00 pm on his way  to lax. Was on tarmac for 2 hrs and now they returned to gate to switch the crew. They say they will leave at 10:45. Whats his best option at this point? Wait it out? Leave? Buy new ticket?

Unfortunately, the delay is probably caused by weather so 1, he probably won't receive any compensation and 2, it is probably affecting all flights equally so no point trying to switch to another flight.

UA 90 out of EWR is delayed from 1050pm until 2am. Any idea if the TSA will still be open two hours before? Or should I get there extra early.
Leaving from terminal C.

I'm flying LGA-IAD-TLV tomorrow (United).
Just saw that there's a weather notice for tomorrow, so thought I'd try and call in and switch to the direct EWR-TLV.
The agent said that she can't change my flight, quoting the terms that appear on the website verbatim:
"The change fee and any difference in fare will be waived for new United flights departing on or before August 10, 2019, as long as travel is rescheduled in the originally ticketed cabin (any fare class) and between the same cities as originally ticketed.​​" And LGA and EWR are not the same origin.

Is she correct? Or should I HUCA? The wait times are just terrible, so I'd like to hear your opinion before I try again...
Aren't all NYC airports considered one airport in regards to weather? I would call again.
HUCA (I see you did already and it worked)
I once tried to book an award from JFK, Europe open jaw and returning to EWR and the phone agent told me I can't as it's an open jaw. I told him it clearly states on united.com (don't have the exact location) that co-airports like EWR/JFK/LGA are considered one city and he got upset and knocked down the phone....

Any way to cancel an Air Canada flight that was booked through Chase Travel Portal without getting charged a whooping $200?

If they ever deny, you can always ask politely if they can check with a supervisor, they  usally know better. This has worked by me and can save 1 PC.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

If a flight has a change in schedule, will I always be able to get a refund? Booked thru flight network and amex travel.
