Airline seats disappearing as Irma approaches Florida

JetBlue, however, started capping one-way fares out of Florida and the Caribbean at $99 on Wednesday, a generous move that also happens to reinforce its brand identity, and is likely to win it more fans in the future.

Hurricane Irma is taking aim at the Bahamas and is already impacting the coast of Cuba.

A Delta official said the company has also made a decision to reduce the price of its highest fares and waive change fees in response to Hurricane Irma.

Furthermore, numerous flights that do remain are sold out (and photos are filling social media showing the crowded airport). "We have full details on the waiver at delta.com", the Delta spokesman told Yahoo Finance.

As these shutdowns approach, airlines are trying to get as many people out as possible by reshuffling resources to add more flights out of Florida. Due to the track of the storm, we will wind down operations on Friday afternoon at our Miami hub, as well as Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach.

United States airlines are adding extra seat capacity and implementing ticket fare caps on flights in Hurricane Irma's destruction path, as evacuations continue in Florida.

Travelers able to return to Rhode Island at T.F. Green Saturday were relieved, and hoped for the best for the travelers stuck at Orlando International Airport and other Florida airports.

While the continuing westward trend may be good news for South Florida, it could be devastating to the Keys. "So happy I finally got on a plane I wasn't going to celebrate until it lifted off and when it did I said all the way here I said thank you God".

Mandatory evacuations were issued Thursday for Brevard County residents.

"This one here seems to be engulfing the entire state.", said Sorel.

"I've never seen traffic in this town. It can be very disturbing, but our guys have handled it very well". The airline has also expanded its weather waiver to include airports along the Georgia and SC coast.

Some 100,000 people refused to leave their homes in New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina hit the city - with almost half (44%) saying they didn't want to leave their animals behind, CNN reported.
