Delta cancels 49 flights due to volcanic ash

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta-based Delta Airlines has canceled 49 flights Monday as the volcanic ash plume continues to hover over Europe.

The airline was also forced to call off about 100 flights on Sunday due to the massive cloud of ash from the volcano that erupted in Iceland last week.

Delta's canceled flights include routes from Atlanta to Europe. A range of other carriers were also forced to scuttle flights over the weekend from Atlanta to Europe.
