With Hurricane Matthew already disrupting air travel in parts of the Caribbean, American Airlines placed Miami International Airport, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Palm Beach International and airports in Orlando, Key West, and other east coast Florida cities on the travel waiver list. That means passengers scheduled to fly through these cities on Thursday or Friday can change their travel plans without paying change fees.

If passengers would like to change their travel plans, they can call our reservations desk at 1-800-433-7300 or they can do so online. If a flight is canceled, passengers can request a full refund, an American spokeswoman said.

So far, American has canceled flights between MIA and the following locations: Cap Hatien and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Holguin and Camaguey, Cuba, Turks and Caicos, Kingston, and Jamaica, Freeport, and Georgetown and Nassau, Bahamas.
