ATLANTA (AP) - Delta Airlines canceled 200 flights Wednesday night and Thursday morning in anticipation of icy weather.
Delta spokeswoman Gina Laughlin says the airline hopes to reduce flight delays by decreasing the number of airplanes that sit at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport overnight --which reduces the amount of de-icing necessary. She says such a strategy is common when ice, snow or sleet are in the forecast.
Laughlin says Delta worked with customers with tickets for the canceled flights to find other accommodations.
She says the flights -- throughout its system -- represent about
five percent of Delta flights.
