ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) - Georgia-based Delta Air Lines says it has canceled about 3,000 flights this week as it continues to struggle in the aftermath of a storm that hit its hub airport in Atlanta.

The thunderstorm hit Wednesday, but canceled flights and long lines in Atlanta continued today.

Tracking service flightaware.com says Delta had canceled more than 400 flights by midday.

One passenger said his flight was delayed multiple times before he arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. 

He states, "I got delayed like seven times in Honolulu, and I was supposed to be getting married on Saturday, I tried to talking to an agent and try to see if I can reschedule but they told me everything's booked so I just had to start looking for different tickets and everything trains buses, that can get me closer to Atlanta"

On Twitter, Delta tells people who are expecting to fly today, to check their flight's status before going to the airport. 

The airline is apologizing and says it's trying to rebook customers.
