http://www.fool.com/News/Take/2003/take030310.htm?ref=btpIn an effort to assuage the pocketbooks of nervous travelers, five U.S. airlines announced they will soften travel restrictions and remove some fees in the case of a Code Red terrorist alert or war with Iraq.Travelers won't receive a refund if they cancel a reservation, but American Airlines' (NYSE: AMR) "Comfort Level" policy permits rebooking U.S. or international flights within 60 days of military action or a Code Red without penalty fees. Under bankrupt U.S. Airways' "Peace of Mind" policy, customers can apply an unused ticket's value to future travel within 90 days of a war or a Code Red. United (NYSE: UAL) passengers receive the same policy, although the specifics have yet to be outlined. Continental (NYSE: CAL) and Delta (NYSE: DAL) passengers can avoid fees when rescheduling transatlantic flights only.
