Continental just suspended all of its flights in and out of Houston through Saturday pending results from Hurricane Ike, which is currently barreling towards the Gulf coast.
Naturally, Mother Nature will be disrupting your plans if you’re flying through Texas this weekend, or even through the heartland over the course of the week, as the storm works its way into the breadbasket and disperses through the country.
Under tropical storm and hurricane conditions, any normal airline usually implements a weather waiver, whereby you can log onto their website, tweak your itinerary and pick a few different flights You can check out Continental’s website here for rebooking strategies.
Meanwhile, if you want to take a look at the time line of the storm check out the interactive page over at MSNBC. It’s got a great detail of where the storm started and the path and intensity of the storm up until now.
Good luck this weekend, Houston. We’ll see you on the other side.
