Airline Grounds Aircraft

A feeder airline for Delta hopes to get all its planes back in the air by Thursday afternoon.

Atlantic Southeast Airlines, which flies from Lexington to Atlanta for Delta, grounded 60 planes because they were improperly inspected.

The move prompted nearly 300 flights nationwide to be canceled, several of those to Blue Grass Airport.

The re-inspections are being done as a precaution. They hope to be back on-schedule by sometime on Thursday.
