Here are seven methods through which you can get yourself home or prevent a delayed flight:
Check For Delays Before Time:
When a bad weather is about to strike, airlines give you an option to change the traveling date of your flight without charging you extra. These updates are given on the website of the airline and also conveyed to the passengers through their contact numbers. Check before you leave for the airport and in case you find bad weather delay then you can book your flight one day ahead.
Spot A Delay Before Anyone Else Does:
If the air carrier you are flying with hasn’t announced that there will be a possible delay, and usually airlines don’t even tell about delays until the plane has landed. There are ways through which you can check the position of a flight that whether your flight will fly on time or will be delayed.

Booking Through Websites:

Book With An Agent:

Look For “Extra Sections”
When things go extremely bad, airlines at times add extra flights known as the “extra sections” to get the crowd moving. These flights are hard to spot, but at times they will show up if you search for an extra flight to your destination.
There are so many ways through which you can book your flight in case of your flight gets delayed, but always try booking through websites as they prompt you instantly in case of a delay.
