Airlines Cancel Flights Before Storms Arrive, and E-Mail the Passengers

This winter, carriers have increasingly chosen not to gamble and are canceling flights before snow begins to fall. They can then communicate with passengers earlier to allow them to change their plans without penalty, possibly getting out of town before bad weather arrives or skipping a trip altogether....Though the airlines lose money when they cancel flights, they can potentially lose more if they keep flying and risk having snowbound crews and planes out of place once the storm passes.
