The thunderstorm in Atlanta, which hit Delta's largest hub on Wednesday, has had effects that reverberated through its flight network for days.

A couple I met traveling from Hong Kong stayed the night in Seattle because their flight was either canceled or delayed. The airline suffered roughly the same number of cancellations as this week's issues when an IT outage in August forced a halt to its operations, leaving the airline catching up for days.

Delta says in Panama City, Florida, Delta employees ordered 60 pizzas and 20 trays of chicken biscuits to feed well over 300 customers.

"There's a ground hold at (New York's) LaGuardia so they may pull us off this plane", said Goldklang, speaking to CNN aboard a flight, her fourth attempt to get out of Savannah Friday evening. Their luggage was apparently never pulled off the plane in time in Hong Kong, so they won't have their luggage when they get to Atlanta. McKnight tried to get a rental vehicle but found none available. "I'll just keep driving east".

Delta says thunderstorms, however, are more hard to predict in severity and length.
