Continental Airlines Expects Delays, Cancellations

HOUSTON (AP) - Continental Airlines Inc. says customers whose flights may be delayed or canceled due to expected wintry weather this week in southeast Texas can change their plans without the usual penalty.

The airline said customers on flights scheduled to, from or through area airports Friday through Sunday can change flights on the company Web site, continental.com.

To waive the change fee, they must reschedule with travel that begins by Dec. 20. In cases of canceled flights, customers can request a refund, the airline said.

The airports expected to be affected by weather include Continental's Houston hub at Bush Intercontinental Airport.

Continental has daily flights between Houston's Bush Intercontinental Airport and Midland International.
