Our YYZ-JFK flight was cancelled tonight. Though there was a weather travel advisory in effect since Saturday night, they refused to rebook me on Westjet earlier today excuse it wasn't "pay with miles eligible". Go figure that they ended up rebooking me on the first available flight tomorrow with is Westjet at 4:30 pm. Gave each of the four of us a $50 travel voucher, which I thought was generous.

That's more than the flight cost itself :)

Follow DDMS. Sometimes you just gotta take what's available.

can only comment that they were willing to rebook me on three separate occasions for this reservations. Will be driving to Brooklyn instead as the flight out of SYR was just cancelled too.

I don't expect any compensation from delta for the rental car (reserved full size at Avis for $84 USD one way and was upgraded to BMW 5 as President's Circle) because the cancellations were all weather related. However, instead of asking for a straight up refund on the phone just now (because who needs 1000 sky miles (250x4)), the rep was kind enough to hold each ticket open for a year with no change fees and ability to change routes entirely ($256.94CAD x4).

As I mentioned earlier, that's how much it comes up on their system

has anyone actually been refunded that amount to a credit card? Would be very surprised if that got through the refunds/audit dept.

Was a little slow through Syracuse due to the snowy weather, then all clear to New York. We got notification that the alternative flight from SYR was cancelled about 30 miles west of SYR and made it home at about the same time that the flight from SYR would have landed in any event had it been on time. Paid $27 for fuel for the entire trip.

No way that it could ever be worth it to fly from Syracuse
