June 15th, Heads Up, Atlanta Takeoff Delays

Heads up to anyone flying through ATL tonight. There may be some sort of delay. We just spent close to an hour crawling from the gate to the runway before taking off. The weather is fine, so I'm not sure why it took so long, but we were in line the entire time and the planes were just not taking off at the usual pace. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone flying through there later tonight.

I'm on DL 706, ATL-DTW if anyone has any insight, but it seemed like an ATL delay rather than a flight-specific issue.

Safe travels.
