Your Death Flight To The Dominican Republic May Now Be Cancelled
Delta Air Lines will allow some passengers to cancel their trip to the Dominican Republic.
The company says it will give waivers to passengers who have tickets. At least ten American visitors have died within the last year, but the causes are not clear.
Delta passengers must rebook their travel to the DR prior to November 20 or get credit to fly somewhere else. As for other destinations in the Dominican Republic, Delta says it will work with passengers on a case-by-case basis.
American, JetBlue, and Sun Country airlines say they’ll also work with their passengers who want to chance or cancel Dominican flights. Analysts say flight cancellations to the Caribbean nation have been soaring and new bookings are down.
The Dominican tourism minister says the series of deaths has been exaggerated.
