Delta Air Lines Inc said it would cancel about 800 flights on Monday as it braces for impacts from Tropical Storm Irma at its Atlanta hub.


"Hurricane Irma is expected to bring to the Atlanta hub strong crosswinds that exceed operating limits on select mainline and regional aircraft," Delta said on Monday.

Delta said it was planning to resume service to Florida airports.
