Airlines are skilled at canceling flights at a moment’s notice. Whether you’re traveling for business or for pleasure, this can be an enormous hassle — especially of you’re traveling with kids. Before flying out, be sure to program the airlines’ customer service number into your cell phone.
If your flight is canceled, you can call customer service immediately, as you head for the ticket agent line. Starting the rebooking process immediately, gives you a better chance of being re-booked on the flight of your choice.
