Delta cancels 275 more flights days after storm disruptions

"We are grateful for your patience and want you to know that we, as always, learn from these experiences".

Delta admits recovery from Wednesday's severe weather has not been ideal. Delta also posted a video apology from CEO Ed Bastian and then offered refunds and $200 in travel vouchers to passengers whose flights were canceled or delayed for at least three hours. The carrier had 161 days in 2016 without a cancellation on its mainline operations.

In fact, there's little that airlines are required to do in cases of delays caused by weather or even air traffic control issues.

But the airline has faced high-profile disruptions recently.

Storms that grounded planes for a few hours on Wednesday put Delta's planes and flight crews out of position.

The Federal Aviation Administration, Delta and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport advised travelers to check their flight status to find out if theirs is affected by the storms.

Crystal and Wayne Curry described what can only be called a travel nightmare.

A Delta spokeswoman told the New York Times on Friday that the primary cause of the prolonged delays was due to the disruption of the travel schedule of the airline crews.

"Delta's website was not updated, and the Delta app kept showing up with error messages every time I tried to rebook another flight".
