Chicago on Friday, snow forecasted
I’m scheduled to fly United from my home city to Chicago (nonstop) on Friday, landing in the night. But it’s supposed to snow on Friday and from what I’ve heard from friends there, the weather is pretty bad. Any way I could get United to move my flight to Thursday? There haven’t been any schedule changes unfortunately.
If it looks like a serious storm sometimes a day or two before they might waive change charges. If it’s a minor storm then I wouldn’t worry about arriving. We get (I’m here) snow all the time. But wear your long underwear if staying in Chicago. They say 15 below Sunday. It was 70 a couple weeks ago.
