Albany-- Delta Airlines pilots may be moving closer to a strike that would create headaches for travelers in Albany and throughout the southeast.

ASA pilots who fly into Southwest Georgia Regional Airport would not be part of the strike but most Albany passengers transfer to a Delta flight in Atlanta.

A strike would ground all Delta flights so Albany airport officials are keeping a close eye on the outcome. Loyal passengers are worried. Rene Sorra traveled on Delta three times in the past few weeks.

"I do most of my travel in the Atlanta region or stemming from Atlanta to other airports and I don't know what I would do," says Sorra.

"We cannot imagine that 6,000 employees would take a whole company down but they could strike. We've been told they could strike for a few hours or a few days just to show their strength," says Airport Director Yvette Aehle.

Aehle says if there is a strike, other airlines would try to honor Delta tickets on a first come first served basis. She says pilots may not strike until after the holiday weekend.
