  • Hurricane Dorian: Travel: A major hurricane making landfall on the U.S. mainland during one of the busiest travel weekends of the year poses serious challenges for airlines, which have already faced a difficult summer with the Boeing 737 Max still grounded. Nearly all the airlines have already waived change fees for most Florida flights, and about 80 domestic flights have been cancelled (though that will increase). At least 18 cruise itineraries have been cancelled or changed. Disney World in Orlando, which just opened its new Star Wars attraction, is in the path of the storm and remains open for now. Updates.
