Delta tries to 'normalize' as flight cancellations continue

Posted April 11, 2017

Severe thunderstorms in the Atlanta area on Wednesday began the chain of events that led to over 3200 Delta flights being canceled since then.

Delta is offering a travel waiver this weekend to help customers rebook flights without change fees.

"Delta's operation continues to recover as airline teams work around the clock to return flights to normal following the disruption from severe storms in the Southeastern U.S. and East Coast this week", the airline said. As of Sunday morning, one flight was canceled out of LAX and two flights won't make it to the airport due to the ongoing airline issue.

Delta's Chief Operating Officer Gil West released a statement apologizing for the cancellations.

The severe weather battered the mid-Atlantic region, the Northeast and Georgia, causing tornado-like conditions around Delta's hub, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, through which 60% of its 1,250-aircraft fleet passes each day.

On Sunday, about 130 flights were canceled, with a statement from Delta Sunday citing the "availability of flight crews to operate within federally mandated crew rest and duty day guidelines". As a result, the airline had to cancel 350 flights on Saturday following three days of major storms.
