For the first time in five years, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL) is reporting more flight cancellations than Chicago O’Hare International (ORD) and this doesn’t even include the power outage cancellations from this week.

Weather is the top reason for flight cancellations and delays nationwide.If a flight is canceled, most airlines will rebook travelers on next available flight at no additional charge. However, airlines are not required to reimburse travelers for losses incurred as a result of a canceled flight.
