At least 20-percent of flights at Nashville International Airport are arriving and departing either late or very late right now, according to FlightView.com data. 

At least one Southwest flight to Atlanta was canceled because it was a Boeing 737 Max 8. News 2 is checking with airport officials about any other flights that may be affected. 

Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and United Airlines are reportedly the only U.S. companies that use the jets. 

Right now, there is a nearly-worldwide grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets after two deadly plane crashes involving the massive airplanes.

Most European countries made the declaration on Tuesday; the U.S. joining the ban after an emergency order was declared by Pres. Donald Trump around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday. 

However, dozens of flights out of the Nashville hub are either delayed or canceled — likely due to severe weather covering most of the Central United States.
