My reservation # XXXXX XXXXX I am flying to Seattle on Saturday,

Resolved Question:

My reservation # XXXXX XXXXX I am flying to Seattle on Saturday, August 27. Currently I am scheduled to fly to Charlotte, NC from Philadelphia, PA and then from Charlotte, NC to Seattle, WA. Is there a way to change flights to fly direct from Philadelphia to Seattle without flying into the hurricane in NC?

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX tremendously!

Please give me a little time to search again. Do you want to stay with US Airways or the airline doesn't matter as long as it's non-stop to Seattle? Direct flights are more expensive than those with stopovers; is it okay to make one stopover other than in Charlotte or any other cities in the path of the hurricane?

Other airlines are OK but my ticket is a non-refundable with US Airways, which is the crux of the problem. In the past I have flown Delta with a stopover in Cincinnati. I was trying to contact US Airways to see about changing my flight to avoid Charlotte, NC as the timing is bad and I am certain that there will be a delay there due to the severe weather. Hurricane Irene does not arrive in Philadelphia until after Saturday morning so my goal was to get out of Philadelphia and some place west (Pittsburgh, Chicago, etc) before the storm starts backing up flights all along the eastern seaboard.

Understood........I'm checking for you now and I thank you for you patience.....

Hi again,

The following flights are available on Sat. Aug. 27th from PHL to SEA from US Airways. The first two are non-stop (no price is given but I will look that up). The others have stopovers, but the stop in Chicago would be a good one for you, under the circumstances.
I need to send it as a file, as it contains a lot of information. Just click on the link I provide, then click on 'download file from mediafire' to open it. CLICK HERE

I'm still researching this, for more details.

Regards,
Cher

Hi again,

Here is more specific information from US Airways on non-stop flights to Seattle; you might want to keep your return flight with the one stop, if it is less expensive; under the circumstances, with the severe weather, they should make exceptions on the non-refundable ticket and allow you to change your outbound flight.

Hi again,

Did you see the phone number listed at the last link I provided, if you need help? 800-327-7810. I don't know if this is the number you called previously, but as you can imagine, due to the hurricane, so many people are trying to change reservations. This website: 'gethuman.com' helps you with tips to get a person more quickly by hitting certain numbers, etc. and might be helpful. I put in US Airways for you: http://gethuman.com/US_Airways-customer-service_825.html
