I think you can use the phrase "for a change" sarcastically, but it would have to be said differently...
"It'd be nice of them not to cancel a flight, for a change..."
You can also say "for a change of pace."
"Let's book a flight with a good airline for a chance of pace."
Or try these similar phrases:
"What else is new" (?)
"The flight was cancelled - what else is new..."
"The flight was cancelled - go figure..."
