Subject: Re: Getting your way with airlines

Sadly, it's possible that insurance wouldn't have helped in Dolores' situation, since weather is often an exempted event, along with terrorism, acts of God or war. Travel insurance carriers have been badly beaten up since 9/11 & consequently are putting in place more exclusions to coverage than previously.

That said, it's always a good idea to explore the insurance options, because there may be some policies that would have protected her in this case.
