Hurricane Willa, a major Category 4 storm, is affecting air travel plans to popular resort destinations in Mexico. Willa was expected to make landfall Tuesday.
Several airlines had issued travel advisories for flights to the region, and some flights had been canceled.
Southwest issued its travel advisory on Monday, covering flyers headed to and from Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta. Passengers booked on flights from Monday, Oct. 22, through Friday, Oct. 26, can change their flight without penalty if they want to get ahead of the storm or wait until it passes. There is fine print.
