Delta Air Lines cancels hundreds of flights due to winter storm

09 Décembre 2017

The airline connects thousands of passengers through the airport every day.

Most airlines flying into Atlanta offered travel waivers for flyers on Friday.

Is your flight on time?

By mid-afternoon Friday, 815 flights had been cancelled, accounting for one third of the total flights at the airport. The snow was initially expected to be only between one and two inches. Aircraft end up in the wrong city when flights are canceled, affecting the restart of scheduled lights the next morning.

FRIDAY: Snow in Atlanta!

At the Baltimore/Washington International - a major base for Southwest and Spirit - 88 flights had been canceled as of 10:40 a.m. ET, FlightAware counted.

The storm forced the airline to cancel 970 flights Friday and 290 flights for Saturday.

The National Weather Service had a winter weather advisory in place for an area that included the airport.

Delta has extended its change fee waiver and is now waiving certain change fees for travelers scheduled to fly Friday through Sunday to, from or through Atlanta, when tickets are rebooked by December 13. Southwest, the second largest airline in Atlanta, faced 160 flights cancellations, with a further 650 flights facing delays.

In Florida, for example, about 30 flights had been canceled at Orlando International - mostly fallout from the problems in Atlanta and the Northeast.

While the weather was unlikely to bring chaos Atlanta's flight schedules, an above-average rate of delays and cancellations were likely to persist throughout the day.
