JetBlue, AirTran cancel Tuesday flights at TIA

JetBlue Airways and AirTran Airways have canceled flights at Tampa International for Tuesday while other carriers warned they might do likewise depending on the whims of Tropical Storm Fay. Your best bet: check your flight status online or by phone before leaving for the airport.

Monday afternoon, JetBlue scratched all flights between Boston and Newark for Tuesday. The airline is scheduled to fly the first two morning departures Tuesday to New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport from Tampa, but canceled all other flights on the route for the rest of the day.

AirTran plans to fly its first two departures to Atlanta on Tuesday, then scrap the rest of its morning flights in and out of Tampa. The carrier hadn't decided late Monday afternoon on the status of local flights after noon.

Other major carriers, including Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines, had not announced changes to their schedules Tuesday. They advised customers to check their Web sites for information.

Some airlines waived fees for travelers wishing to rebook flights on Tuesday. Each of the offers differ, so check details on airline Web sites.
