Northwest Delay Debate

With Northwest Airlines Mechanics on strike, conflicting reports are emerging about the airline's on-time performance.

Since Sunday morning, passengers said they have experienced delays and cancellations across America.

Chris Hodge told Action News 5 that he, his wife and son were supposed to arrive in Memphis from Kansas City, Missouri at about 1p.m. Sunday. Instead, he arrived at 8p.m. after several delays and a flight cancellation. Action News 5 checked and an NWA agent told us Hodge's flight was cancelled over a maintenance issue.

On the other hand, Northwest Airlines says it is operating at a level consistent to its usual schedule on a typical summer weekend.

The majority of flights in and out of Memphis International Airport arrived on time Sunday.

Either way, Hodge said his ordeal at the airport was rough.
