Delta Air Lines plane from Atlanta makes emergency landing in Nashville due to engine failure

A Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to San Francisco was forced to make an emergency landing in Nashville on Monday morning due to an engine issue, as the holiday travel chaos continues.

The flight with 185 passengers and six crew members on board made the landing after the pilot received a notification about the engine less than an hour after takeoff, a Delta spokesperson told DailyMail.com.

The crew decided to land at Nashville International Airport as a precaution. No one was injured on the flight and the plane landed without incident. Passengers waited there more than three hours for another plane.

Travel chaos has plagued the US over the holiday weekend as a catastrophic storm hit, killing at least 55 people in the US and Canada.

On Monday, more than 2,519 flights were canceled in the US – and another 4,309 delayed, according to Flight Aware.

A passenger on the San Francisco-bound flight called the incident ‘unnerving,’

‘Just lost an engine on a @Delta flight from Atlanta,’ Mark Katches wrote on Twitter. ‘Haven’t even had my coffee yet.’

The Delta flight added to the chaotic list of issues for travelers attempting to be with their loved ones for the holidays.

Tens of thousands of Americans have been affected over the past week after a nationwide ‘bomb cyclone’ snowstorm grounded flights and closed runways.

Passengers have been forced to sleep on the floor as some airports closed their runways ‘indefinitely,’ including in Seattle-Tacoma where a storm hit on December 23.

Thousands of people were left stranded inside the airport on Friday and all the hotels nearby are fully booked. The runways at the airport reopened on the same day.

Photos showed travelers with blankets as they slept on chairs and other open areas.

On Christmas Day, 4,937 flights were canceled and 16,859 were delayed.

Southwest had the most canceled flights on Monday with 1,253. The airports with the most delays are in Atlanta, Denver and Baltimore.

Some travelers decided to avoid long flight delays and cancellations and took matters into their own hands.

Bridget Schuster, Greg Henry, Abby Radcliffe and Shobi Maynard were stranded at the Tampa, Florida, airport on December 22 after their flight home to Cleveland, Ohio was canceled.

The four, who appeared to be in their 20s, joined together after meeting for the first time at the airport and decided to drive about 20 hours to Ohio rather than wait for the earliest flight out on Christmas Eve.

They shared their adventure on TikTok, amazing millions of views as they journeyed through gas stations and rest stops, blizzards and downpours, before making it home.

A continuous winter storm continues to envelop much of the United States, bringing record-breaking low temperatures for 200 million Americans, blinding blizzards, freezing rain and flooding.

The storm that arrived last week stretched from the Great Lakes near Canada to the Rio Grande along the Mexican border.

In response to the inclement weather, President Joe Biden said: ‘This is a really serious weather alert. Please take this storm extremely seriously.’

The NWS warned: ‘In some areas, being outdoors could lead to frostbite in minutes.’

Residents and travelers in the Western US, including in central California, can expect the storm to continue through Wednesday as a cyclone and a cold front move inland.

Meanwhile, in Buffalo, another 36 inches of snow is predicted until Tuesday.

The city has been battered by the bomb cyclone as the National Guard has been deployed to help with rescue effort. As of Monday afternoon, at least 27 people in upstate New York had died as a result of the storm.
