Delta says 150 more flights canceled as storm effects linger

Tornado-like conditions plagued the airline's hub in Atlanta, where almost 60% of delta's fleet passes through each day.

According to an airline statement, "Operations are stabilizing Sunday".

In a note to customers, Delta apologized for the disruption and difficulty accommodating those who travel. After she raced to the airport to catch her new flight, that one was canceled, too.

On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) implemented a ground stop for all inbound and outbound flights.

The No. 2 USA airline said it had canceled around 3,000 flights in the wake of Wednesday's storms that left passengers stranded and frustrated during one of the busiest travel weeks of the year.




The cancelations have forced hundreds of passengers to stand in line for hours to rebook flights while an equal number waited in hours-long lines to retrieve checked baggage.

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".

Suzanne Goldklang, a reporter at CNN affiliate WNEP in Pennsylvania, had her Thursday evening departure from Savannah, Georgia, canceled, only to be rescheduled on a flight leaving four-and-a-half hours earlier.

Travelers whose flights are canceled can get a refund.

Airline officials said they are working to return flights to normal. Goldklang's flight finally left Savannah for NY, 61 minutes late.
