Delta meltdown: Pilots are on hold, too

( CNN) You might not be the only one on hold with Delta Air Lines this weekend. Their aviators are, too.

Delta was still healing this weekend after canceling more than 3,200 flights in the wake of violent storms that battered its main hub in Atlanta.

But it’s not just passengers who have to wait on the phone. Delta’s pilots and flight attendants, who have tightly regulated work schedules, have been on hold with their own internal schedulers as well, said one Delta pilot.
