ANTHONY PLASCENCIA/THE STAR Mud and debris completely covered a section of the Thornhill Broome campground at Point Mugu State Park along the Pacific Coast Highway last month after a night of heavy rain.

At a Glance: How to handle a flight cancellation

Posted January 27, 2015 by | 0 Comments | ]

Number one tip: Whether it’s an airport delay or flight cancellation, contact your airline – immediately. Here’s why:
Airlines have fewer seats on fewer flights these days, so only a lucky few will be able to grab the next available seats on a flight. Being first in line to snag a seat is key.
If Your Flight is Canceled Multi-task communications:
If your flight is canceled or delayed, immediately get in line for a gate agent; at the same time, call the airline (it may be quicker).
Use your elite miles status:
If your status entitles you to a dedicated airline contact hotline, use it.
Follow your airline on Twitter:
Airlines have staff monitoring social networks, and may respond more quickly to tweets for help than other communications
