The Times also says to read the fine print - you have the right to demand a refund on a canceled flight - even because of bad weather - from any airline if you decide not to take the trip.
We recommend buying a new ticket if your flight is canceled. You'll have priority over those trying to re-book. The airlines like fresh revenue! You can use the old one at a later date.
In addition, keep the number of your favorite hotel chain on your speed dial and partake in lots of food therapy (comfort food that is).
See you on the road!
