ATLANTA (AP) — Delta Air Lines officials say more than 1,800 flights have been canceled ahead of a winter storm expected to pelt areas of the Southeast with sleet and snow.
Delta spokeswoman Betsy Talton says 1,850 flights have been canceled system-wide Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. Of that number, Talton says 840 flights from Atlanta have been impacted.
The airline is offering travelers the opportunity to make one-time changes to their tickets without a fee if they’re traveling through Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, the Carolinas and Texas. Delta officials expect service to be impacted between Jan. 28 and 29, and replacement tickets must be reissued by Feb. 1.
Customers are encouraged to check their flight’s status online and sign up to receive notifications about their flight via email or text message.
