Delta woes continue because of staffing; 100+ flights canceled Sunday

Delta Air Lines jet sits at a gate at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta. Delta Air Lines says it has canceled about 3,000 flights this week as it continues to struggle in the aftermath

Delta canceled another 150 flights Sunday as it tried to get back on schedule after the severe storms disrupted flights into and out of its hub in Atlanta.

Five days after a mid-week storm caused massive flight cancelations, delays and operations, Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines canceled 130 flights on Sunday because of manpower shortages.

Delta Chief Operating Officer Gil West called the storms that pounded Atlanta "unprecedented" and acknowledged the recovery effort could have been better.

Delta canceled hundreds of flights nationally, three days after severe thunderstorms caused disruptions at its hub airport in Atlanta.

Delta canceled about 3,000 flights nationwide last week.

Several factors aggravated the recent air-travel headaches, including planes packed with vacationers on spring break. The resulting backlash, planes and flight crews out of position for the next day, led to the flurry of cancellations.

The cancellations have also impacted travelers at Bradley International Airport.

According to Richmond International Airport's website, there is one delayed departure and one arrival flight from Boston Monday morning.

Thunderstorms Wednesday triggered the cancellation spree.

Many passengers took their frustrations with Delta to social media and #DeltaMeltdown went viral.

Thunderstorms and tornado warnings caused nearly 3,000 flights to be cancelled or delayed.
