United, Delta, AirTran, US Airways, American, Southwest offer free rebooking due to weather

A big winter storm expected to hit the Northeast this weekend is causing airlines to offer some special deals.

For this weekend only, airlines are instituting flexible rebooking waivers so you can avoid a hassle at the airport.

Big delays are expected for flights heading anywhere from Maine to Pennsylvania because of the winter storm expected to dump up to 2 feet of snow on the region.

Delta was among the airlines to relax its rules, saying fliers heading to the Northeast can make a one-time change to their travel schedules without the standard fee. Normally big carriers charge $150 or more for changing tickets -- a fee that comes in addition to any difference in fare that might result.

Other airlines are also instituting similar policies including: AirTran, Air Canada, American, Porter Airlines, Southwest, United, and US Airways. 

If you're planning on flying this weekend, we suggest you check with your airline for any deals or options being offered.
