The race to catch a flight out of Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma is grinding to a close.
Airports in Florida are closing and airlines are halting operations on Friday as the storm approaches the state.
More than 3,100 flights have been cancelled into and out of Florida's four largest airports from Friday through Sunday, according to plane-tracker Flight Aware. Some 4,600 flights have been cancelled so far due to the storm.
Airlines have been offering change- and cancellation-fee waivers to passengers in the storm and have capped fares of the scarce seats left on flights after customers complained of sky-high prices as they tried to escape the hurricane. Delta Air Lines said it would allow pets to travel in the cabin for free.
