Flights at Hartsfield-Jackson grounded by approaching storms

Delta is offering a travel waiver this weekend to help customers rebook flights without change fees.

The timing of this week's storms - during spring break, when already crowded planes were packed with vacationers- only exacerbated Delta's seat-shortage problem.

Delta says it is still getting planes and crews back in position for flights.
