Flight Interruptions

When flights cancel, this shortcut helps find alternatives


Description

When you first run the shortcut it will prompt you to set your “home” airport code.

You’ll be prompted with a departure airport and a destination airport. There’s two searches to choose from Basic & Advanced.

With basic, it defaults to a flight departing today, one way, one guest, in economy cabin.

With advanced, it will prompt you if you want the weather at destination, a different flight date, how many guests, which cabin class, which airlines to exclude, or if you want multiple destinations.

Flight date: Today Tomorrow Or choose date

Weather at destination: Two websites are searched for data about your destination. A Current delay report, current flights landing, and flight paths of those aircrafts. Images are combined and a quick look is presented. (You could save or share the image before continuing).

Exclude airlines: Air Canada & WestJet are the two major airlines in Canada. This option lets you select to include or exclude either airline.

Guest count: Defaulted to two, but any number could be added.

Similar Airports: Type in an airport code to have it added in the Destination search.

Cabin class: Economy Premium Economy Business First Class

If you choose Economy, the result will appear in the shortcuts app. If you choose any other cabin, it will open a webpage in safari. The reason is, Economy alternative routes are easier to find than the other cabins. Having a Safari page open let’s you come back and reference it later.

Similar to how you select a home airport. In the future I’d like to have Siri shortcuts show you all the flights a specific airline has partnerships with. Different airlines have different partnerships, and depending on why your flight is cancelled can alter your options.
