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. Last year, a power outage forced the airline to cancel 2,300 flights, and the company responded by handing out pizza, donuts, and beers to stranded customers, as reported by WSBTV.

Delta is offering a travel waiver this weekend to help customers rebook flights without change fees. Making matters worse, "Heavy spring break travel means open seats are very limited for rebooking", the airline said Friday morning.

"When Delta doesn't fly aircraft, not only do customers not get to their destination, but flight crews don't get to where they are scheduled to be".

Tired, angry, and desperate passengers remained stranded at airports on Friday.

"We know it's not fun to be stuck on the ground somewhere", Delta corporate communications manager Michael Thomas told paper. They sent me a text saying my red eye flight out of Honolulu was cancelled two hours before boarding.

McKnight, a furniture designer who was returning from a business trip to Louisville when her connecting flight was cancelled, spent the night in the terminal. Goldklangs' flight finally left Savannah Friday evening for NY, 61 minutes late.

You are entitled to a refund if your flight is cancelled and you do not travel.

When these Delta passengers couldn't make their flight, the airline instead chose to treat everyone to a bite.

They were again rescheduled for a Monday flight, but Wayne Curry's diabetes medicine was due to run out before then.

"My trip had a cushion, so I'm OK", passenger Dana Key said.

And despite all that maneuvering, they still missed the 80th birthday of Wayne's mother.

"It's always busy, but I have never seen this airport like this", Saghian said.
