US Airways Waives Fees Due To Snow

If you're taking a flight out of the Pitt Greenville Airport, US Airways has announced some good news for customers.

Due to the snow about to hit our area, US Airways is going to waive the standard change fee for those of you who need to change your flights because of the snow.

The airline says customers can move their entire itinerary up to seven days before or after their scheduled flight.

The airline also says customers can apply the full value of their unused ticket toward the purchase of a ticket to another destination.

They are urging customers to check their flight status.

    Ginger - I thought I was the only person left in the world who noticed mistakes like that. It's even worse when they are in the paper (where the word merchants are presumed to be professionals). It happens rather frequently in the Washington paper. In any case, isn't it nice that US Air can't fly so they don't hit you with a "change" fee.

    Spell check isn't enough! "Your" is a possessive pronoun. "You're" means "you are"! Check the second word, first sentence.
