All the remaining flights are canceled through Sunday.

Florida State has canceled its Saturday home football game with Louisiana-Monroe due to Hurricane Irma, while Central Florida has postponed its Friday game with Memphis.

Meanwhile, airlines including Delta, United, American and JetBlue are winding down operations in southern Florida on Friday afternoon or early evening as Irma, now a powerful Category 4 hurricane, approaches the state.

Today, American has added 16 extra flights from Miami: 12 to Dallas/Fort Worth, one to Philadelphia and three to New York (JFK).

The airlines service has reportedly announced that until September 10, no direct flight originating from Florida will be more than $99, and any flight that has another connecting trip will be capped at $159.

Irma comes just days after Hurricane Harvey dumped record-setting rain in Texas, causing unprecedented flooding, killing at least 60 people and leaving an estimated $180bn in property damage in its wake.

Launching a enormous game that only works when players are connected to the server is always something of a nervous time. This takes the form of a "Legendary Sword", "Legendary Player Emote" and a "Cabal Empire Themed Emblem".

"Following updated forecasts tracking Hurricane Irma and announcements from local airport authorities, we now have canceled 878 flights through Monday, September 11th", the company told NBC News in an emailed statement. Other airlines had already ceased operations in the region. And by taking a stand on prices, JetBlue made it clear that it's got the right priorities, and customers are likely to keep that in mind in the future.

American Airlines is also capping ticket prices at $99.

Hurricane Irma's impact on USA flights continued to grow Saturday as the monster storm tracked toward Florida. On Tuesday, one Twitter user found a Delta flight from Miami that was usually priced at $547 selling for more than $3200.

Attorney General Pam Bondi has activated a price gouging hotline for consumers who believe they have been victims of unlawful hikes. "It can be disturbing, but I think our guys have handled it well". Customers who booked through a travel agent are requested to contact their agency directly.

Senator Bill Nelson, a Florida Democrat who had been pressuring airlines to aid in evacuating Florida residents, spoke with airline executives on Thursday and urged them to add more flight outs of Florida. "I said, 'Get me a flight anywhere, two seats anywhere, ' and they got me a flight to Dallas for $99".

Air Berlin:Canceled Saturday and Sunday flights. In some cases, carriers added flights and upsized aircraft out of Florida and the Caribbean before the storm struck to accommodate as many passengers evacuating the area as possible.
