Travel tip of the week - If you have a medical emergency in the family and you need to change your flight, Delta will usually do it for no cost. American won't, though. But always look for an alert on Twitter, alerts trigger waivers on airlines, which usually lets you change your ticket for free. And you can also do it online. So the takeaway is ... check your options! Don't just accept that the airlines are going to take your money to chance it. Also, wait until the last minute in case the flight gets cancelled before you cancel your flight.
Deal of the week - Quantis is having a crazy sale to Brisbane, AUS for $655, Philly for $655, and Auckland $619 (American).
