KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Monday morning and midday travelers hoping to arrive in Knoxville on a Delta Airlines flight out of Atlanta saw their flights canceled, turning a half-hour flight into lengthy delay.

Most flights departing before noon out of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were canceled Monday morning, while others were simply delayed until noon or later.

Six other afternoon and evening Delta flights from Atlanta to Knoxville were listed as being on-time by late Monday morning.
