Latest Airline Schedule Changes: New Cities, New Routes

Airlines can add/subtract destinations, or change routes with little or no notice, so it’s always smart to stay on top of schedules. Usually airlines notify passengers of flight changes (but only if they have your contact information).

Here’s the latest list of changes; this time it’s all about new service.

Allegiant:

  • The low cost carrier is expanding service out of Tulsa, with summertime non-stop service to Las Vegas (starting April 8), Los Angeles (June 5) and Tampa (May 7).
  • The airline also begins twice-weekly service between Indianapolis and Ft. Lauderdale on April 8.

Cathay Pacific:

  • The international airline will increase Hong Kong-San Francisco service beginning June 11.

Delta:

  • The airline hopes to begin flying between Los Angeles and Shanghai beginning in July. According to media reports, before 2011, no U.S. carriers flew this route; now it’s covered by American, United and if all goes as expected, Delta.

JetBlue:

  • Beginning May 28, the popular low cost carrier begins offering a daily round-trip flights between Reno-Tahoe International and JFK in New York.

If Your Flight Changes

If your airline makes changes that adversely affect your flight, contact the carrier immediately. You won’t be able to force them to restore dropped service but you may be able to change to a more convenient flight without paying the change fee. Maybe. You won’t know if you don’t ask.
