Flight delays and cancellations: do they cost the customer?

Inclement weather, in particular winter weather conditions, can wreak havoc on flights with many ending up delayed or even cancelled. Besides the inconvenience for passengers there can also be additional costs they end up incurring such as a hotel night stay, additional meals, additional parking costs, and more. Sometimes passengers are left having to re-book on another airline, which can also end up being more expensive.

The fact of the matter is when flights are affected by weather or what is deemed factors out of the airline’s control passengers are usually left on the hook for additional costs. As far as the airlines go they are simply responsible for getting you on the next available flight or giving you with a refund for the portion of the flight they aren’t able to provide you.
